Please note: The Courtauld Gallery is currently closed for renovation. The reopening is scheduled for spring 2021.
The Courtauld Gallery in London has art on display from the early Renaissance to the 20th century. The collections include iconic Old Masters, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, along with sculpture, decorative and applied arts. Some of the pieces of art visitors can view here are by Monet, Van Gogh and Gauguin, as well as the largest collection of Cézannes in the UK. It is housed in Somerset House, an 18th-century building that was once the Royal Academy of Art. It is also the heart of the Courtauld Institute of Art and part of London's Museum Mile.
Most of the art on display was gifted to the Courtauld. The museum also has temporary exhibits throughout the year that focus on various topics and artists. Occasionally the museum holds special lectures, lunchtime talks, workshops, short courses and other events. There is also a cafe and a gift shop.
The Courtauld Gallery is located at The Strand entrance of Somerset House, and the nearest underground station is Temple.
