Dulwich meets Oklahoma

In Dulwich OnView, Museums, new content on January 15, 2010 at 9:45 am

There’s a beautiful group of paintings in Dulwich Picture Gallery called the Dutch Italianates – that is Dutch artists painting in an Italian style in the 17th century. There’s a strong emphasis on landscapes, and it’s known that Dutch artists were indeed there in the Italian countryside at the birth of Italian landscape painting.

The pictures have been on loan recently to Oklahoma City Museum of Art, where they were displayed in a special temporary exhibition. They’re on their way back to Dulwich now. Dulwich OnView has published an interview with the Gallery’s Director Ian Dejardin about the paintings. He talks about the influences on the Dutch artists in Italy, their significance in art history and his favourite paintings in the collection.

We published the interview in two parts, with illustrations from DPG’s collection (part onepart two). Or you can read the full transcript of the interview on OCMOA’s website.
