Dulwich Picture Gallery and Cafe

I grew up with Winslow Homer's "A Fair Wind" as it was my mother's favorite print and featured prominently in our home. When I read in the Metro that there was a special Winslow Homer exhibit at the Dulwich Picture Gallery (photo from VisitBritain), I just had to visit. The museum was nice but the exhibit was small and "A Fair Wind" was NOT on exhibit. We liked the museum's permanent collection because there was an interesting summary next to each painting. The gallery cafe was a great place to enjoy a light lunch, and it was a beautiful day. West Dulwich has some beautiful homes, a college and a lot of green - very pretty and a pleasant day out.
