'Girl at a Window' is leaving Dulwich Picture Gallery

Rembrandt’s ‘Girl at a Window’ is going to be on holiday away from Dulwich Picture Gallery for a while.

The painting will be de-installed on Thursday 3 September and will return to the Gallery a year later.

‘Girl at a Window’ will remain in London for the autumn and will then travel across the Atlantic and back.
She will be on show in the following exhibitions:

- Turner & the Masters, Tate Britain, London,   23 September 2009 – 31 January 2010
- European Masterpieces from Dulwich Picture Gallery, The Frick Collection, New York,   9 March – 30 May 2010
- Turner & the Masters, Museo del Prado, Madrid, 21 June – 19 September 2010

I am sorry to have to tell you that she will be away for a full year, but considering how generous other museums have been in supporting our own exhibitions, we need to reciprocate. You will be glad to know that in view of these exceptional circumstances the Trustees have agreed not to consider lending the painting again for the five years after 2011.

Two other paintings will also be away from 3 September:

Nicholas Poussin, Roman Road
