Viewing The Courtauld Gallery Reopening

After a three-year, £57 million makeover, The Courtauld Gallery is finally reopening its doors. Visitors to the spanking new space will see one of the UK’s greatest art collections, ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, redisplayed across elegantly refurbished galleries. As hoped, this bijou trove shines brighter than ever before.

Among the treasures back on display are Botticelli’s large-scale masterpiece The Trinity with Saints and The Courtauld’s celebrated collection of works by Peter Paul Rubens. Other highlights include the gallery’s renowned collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces, such as Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (1882), Van Gogh’s Self- Portrait with Bandaged Ear (1889), and the most significant collection of works by Cézanne in the UK. New to the hang is Cecily Brown’s Unmoored from her reflection, a large-scale painting specially commissioned for the curved wall at the top of gallery’s historical staircase.

After meandering around the permanent galleries, head to the top floor to see Modern Drawings: The Karshan Gift (19 Nov 21 – 9 Jan 22), a temporary exhibition showcasing an outstanding group of drawings by European and American masters including Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Georg Baselitz and Cy Twombly. Courtauld, it’s good to have you back!
