Poussin and Claude are to be found in abundance in this gallery; in fact Dulwich Picture Gallery holds one of the largest collections of paintings by Poussin in the country.  Both were key players in French Classicism’s origins and the two painters’ works served as models for artists, setting the standard for the genres of history and landscape painting.  Important works include Poussin’s The Triumph of David ,Rinaldo and ArmidaThe Nurture of Jupiter and The Return of the Holy Family from Egypt, and Claude’sJacob and Laban with Daughters.
