The Courtauld is best known for its Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including iconic works by Manet, Degas, Monet, van Gogh, Gauguin, and Cézanne. The displays extend into the 20th century with works by Modigliani, Matisse, Kandinsky and the Bloomsbury group, alongside masterpieces of German Expressionism and modern British art.

The Courtauld Gallery is now temporarily closed while undertaking a major redevelopment project, Courtauld Connects.  This ambitious project will see the transformation of the Gallery and its services, enabling them to provide visitors with a world-class experience.

works on loan

During this time of redevelopment, The Courtauld has established partnerships both nationally and internationally to provide unique opportunities for more audiences to engage with its collection than ever before. Their founder, Samuel Courtauld, built his fortune through a nationwide textile firm called Courtauld’s Ltd.  Some of these partnerships are inspired by this history, delivering a programme of activity which will engage with people living in areas near to where Courtauld’s Ltd once had significant industrial presence, and beyond.

This includes masterpieces by artists such as Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Turner, and provides coverage of major national schools and periods.  In January 2015, The Courtauld unveiled The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery, a new exhibition space for our drawings collection.
