Treasures of the Courtauld

The Courtauld Gallery, open to the public daily, is famous for its iconic Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces, as well as numerous other important paintings and works of art from the Renaissance through to the 20th century. Patrons also enjoy the added bonus of lunchtime gallery talks, public lectures, short courses and summer school. One of the first art history institutions, Samuel Courtauld formed The Courtauld Institute of Art in 1932, with Sir Robert Witt and Viscount Lee of Fareham. The gallery is located at The Strand entrance of Somerset House.
