E.J. Van Wisselingh's Gallery (formerly Dutch Gallery)

The Van Wisselingh firm of art dealers in Amsterdam [] opened a branch in London under the name the Dutch Gallery. They specialized in the work of the Barbizon and Hague school painters, but also exhibited the work of contemporary British artists, including William Rothenstein, Charles Conder and Walter Sickert. The name of the London branch was changed to E. J. Van Wisselingh’s Gallery in 1906, a change reflected in the exhibition catalogues held at the National Art Library.
