The Courtauld Institute Of ArtManet's 'Bar at the Folies-Bergeres', Van Gogh's 'Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear' and Renoir's 'La Loge' are just a few of the celebrated artworks displayed at the Courtauld in the Strand Block of the glorious, 18th century Somerset House. 530 paintings, 7000 drawings and 15,000 prints combine to create one of the most notable collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Old Master works on display today. Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Seurat, Rousseau, Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani and eight of Cezanne's key pieces all feature in the collection originally presented to the gallery by its founder Samuel Courtauld in 1932. Add to this examples of medieval, Renaissance and modern sculpture, ceramics, metalwork, furniture and textiles and you have a gallery of major significance and international worth.
