The Dulwich Picture Gallery was the first purpose-built art gallery in England. It has on display an excellent collection of more than 600 works, majorly French, Italian and Spanish Baroque paintings by Old Masters such as Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens and many others. The gallery was designed in Classical style by Sir John Soane and opened in 1817. This innovative roof-lantern illuminated gallery also has the mausoleum of the collectors, Noel Desenfans and Sir Peter Francis Bourgeois.
