The Courtauld Gallery’s collection stretches from the early Renaissance into the 20th century and is displayed in the elegant setting of Somerset House, one of the city’s most dynamic cultural venues. The Gallery is particularly renowned for its unrivalled collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including masterpieces by Monet, Van Gogh and Gauguin and the largest collection of Cézannes in the UK. The Gallery also holds an outstanding collection of drawings and prints and fine works of sculpture and decorative arts. Find out more about the Gallery here.
