Mylands have long-standing associations with many leading art institutions across London, established over its many years as the world’s oldest paint brand founded and based in the city. Mylands is the primary paint supplier to Dulwich Picture Gallery and works regularly with art and cultural institutions such as National Portrait Gallery, Sir John Soane museum and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Painting Norway is the first major UK show of the work of Harald Sohlberg (1869–1935), one of the greatest masters of landscape painting in the history of Norwegian art. The exhibition is on view at The Dulwich Picture Gallery from 13th February – 2nd June and is timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Sohlberg’s birth, it will bring together over 90 works, including archive material, to reveal the importance of colour and symbolism in his art as well as his unwavering passion for the Nordic landscape.

Mylands have supplied two of the most popular paint colours from The Colours of London paint collection for the backdrop for this exhibition Archway House No. 106, and Borough Market No. 38. Adding to the enchantment and immersing the viewer in the magical world of Sohlberg’s moonlit mountains and winter woodlands, the dark and enveloping tones of Archway House and Borough Market create a suitably atmospheric background to frame the exhibition in the unique setting of the Gallery’s mausoleum.
“Working for many years with such a respected institution as Dulwich Picture Gallery is just one of the many parts we value in the history of Mylands. As the world’s oldest family-run paint brand, still mixing and manufacturing from our London factory yet operating globally, it’s always heartening and an honour to see our paints in a local setting.”
