After an ambitious three-year transformation project, The Courtauld Gallery reopened in November 2021. The Courtauld is home to one of the world’s great art collections, and is located in the North Wing of Somerset House, Strand, WC2R 0RN. The Courtauld’s much-loved collection includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and decorative arts ranging from the Renaissance through to the 20th century. The Gallery is renowned for its remarkable group of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including the world-famous A Bar at the Folies Bergère by Édouard Manet, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear by Vincent van Gogh and the most significant collection of works by Cézanne in the UK.
