Londonist Out Loud: The First Public Gallery Was In London

Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.

We're at the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery — Dulwich Picture Gallery — with Ian Dejardin, the gallery's Sackler Director.

The gallery is one of London's most wonderful gems, and owner of one of the finest collections of Old Master paintings in the world.
