Walter Sickert brings back memories of Venice

We did our £10 daysave rail deal to Victoria, and visited Dulwich Picture Gallery for the ‘Sickert in Venice’ exhibition. It was a good choice on a drizzly day. My favourite was ‘Il Canal, Venecia: Palozzo Montecucciola’ shown above. Sickert was into Nocturne paintings, but some require cleaning, an idea strengthened by the Gallery exhibition handbook showing some considerably lightened. A great exhibition at a lovely gallery, we hope they have further exhibitions to attract us.
