The Courtauld Institute Gallery has one of the most important collections in Britain, including world-famous Old Master and Impressionist and Post Impressionist paintings, together with sculpture and applied arts. Its special atmosphere reflects its origins in a series of remarkable gifts and bequests by some of the leading collectors of the twentieth century, including Samuel Courtauld, Roger Fry, Lord Lee and Count Seilern.
The Courtauld Gallery and the Courtauld Shop are currently closed because of major refurbishments - an ambitious transformation has begun. Courtauld Connects is the name of the new project, which aims to make the Courtauld's collections and all areas of its building as accessible as possible to people from all over the world.
However, significant highlights from their collections can still be viewed around the world in a variety of exciting exhibitions.
The National Gallery, London
27th March 2019 to 19th April 2020
Over 20 of the Courtauld's most iconic masterpieces will be on show in a dedicated Courtauld display called The Courtauld at the National Gallery which runs for a large portion of the time the main Courtauld Gallery is closed. For London-based art fans, this remains the single best way to enjoy a selection of the collection's best known works.
In addition, more Courtauld works will be on display throughout the National Gallery’s permanent collection.
Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris
20th February 2019 to 17th June 2019
Over 100 works from the Courtauld's collection are being loaned for this prestigious exhibition in Paris with a keen eye on Impressionist works.
Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro
27th September 2019 - 12th January 2020
From September The Courtauld will be embarking on a touring exhibition of remarkable pieces of Islamic metalwork dating from the 13th to the 16th centuries. The objects include some of the finest examples of this intricate craft from modern-day Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt and Turkey, and will travel to four venues across the UK.
Other exhibitions will also be running throughout 2019 and 2020 in other regions, including Tokyo. The Courtauld has established partnerships both nationally and internationally to provide unique opportunities for more audiences to engage with our collection than ever. All other works which are not loaned to partner organisations will be kept in secure storage until the Gallery reopens.
