The National Gallery of Jamaica is the oldest and largest public art museum in the English-speaking Caribbean. It originally opened at the historic Devon House on November 14, 1974 and will be celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year. Devon House was a beautiful and popular location but the National Gallery quickly outgrew the premises because of its expanding collections and exhibition programme.
