Dulwich, South London, England - (BTT) Even if you have never been inside the Dulwich Picture Gallery, architect Sir John Soane's landmark 1817 building and England's first purpose-built public art gallery, chances are you have been to a museum that was directly influenced by it. Designed as a series or interlinked rooms, illuminated indirectly from above through the use of skylights, Soane set the standard to how paintings should be displayed that continues on to this very day.
