Picture This – Writers’ Talks in
The Courtauld Gallery

October 2011
The Courtauld Gallery
Picture This...returned in 2011 for its third year, hosted by current Writer in Residence Frances Wilson. Six eminent writers discussed a work of art from The Courtauld Gallery’s permanent collection that excited, engaged or provoked them. 

Each evening the writers presented their personal reflections in a 20-minute talk, inspired by a painting from the remarkable collection of world-famous Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces in The Courtauld Gallery.

Talks were followed by a Q&A session and a chance to meet the writers. Prior to the talk, audience members were invited to a private view of The Courtauld’s permanent collection, which ranges from early Renaissance to art of the 21st century.
