Best of British

Look at the feeling for light and atmosphere conveyed by this knockout painting by Sir Peter Lely, somewhat inappropriately entitled A Boy as a Shepherd. Shepherding cattle? Never mind. It's a classic example of great British art from the days when you needed talent to be an artist, one of the exhibits in Best of British, which opened today at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, and continues until 27 September. The exhibition tells the story of the British Collection at Dulwich Picture Gallery (title link). At £5 admission - £4 concessions and free for kids - it looks good value.
