Dutch at Dulwich
Yesterday we went to Dulwich Picture Gallery to see the Adriaen van de Velde exhibition. In comparison to some of the other exhibitions I've seen there over the past few years, it was a bit underwhelming, with a rather small number of paintings and quite a few small-scale chalk sketches. Nevertheless, there's no question about the quality of the paintings. At several points, notes were made on the staggeringly high prices paid for some of these works, particularly in the 18th and 19th centuries; one piece fell out of favour when it became apparent that the group portrayed was not a self-portrait of the artist and his family.

Shame that the exhibition was a bit underwhelming.
