Masterpieces for the King? Rubens, van Dyck, Teniers the Younger from the collection of Dulwich Picture Gallery

Sep 9 - Dec 1 2022       ul. Agrykola 1
A small but extremely important exhibition of outstanding works from some of the greatest 17th and 18th-century Flemish, Dutch and Italian masters of painting, sourced from the collections of London’s prestigious Dulwich Picture Gallery. While they may have been produced on the other side of the continent, the works on display have a very unique connection to Poland. Prior to the Dulwich’s acquisition, these works had been purchased by Noël Desenfans, a French-born art dealer who found himself in the employment of Stansilaus II August Poniatowski, the last king of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The country’s partitioning in 1795, Poniatowski’s subsequent abdication and death three years later meant that this phenomenal collection could not be finalised. Thus, Desenfans was forced to sell them onwards. Now, more than 200 years later, these paintings are on display in Poland for the first time ever! The five masterpieces on display are as follows:

"Portrait of a Lady" by Peter Paul Rubens
"Madonna and Child" by Anthony van Dyck
"Talking Peasants Against a Landscape with a Church" by David Teniers the Younger
"The Judgement of Paris" by Adriaen van der Werff
"Soldiers Playing Dice" by Salvatore Rosa
