The Courtauld Gallery

Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

At the Courtauld Institute of Art lies a splendid gallery filled with some of the finest artwork in the world. The Courtauld Gallery contains artwork from impressionist and post-impressionist masters like Manet, Monet, Degas, Cezanne and Pissarro. For true art lovers, this location is a one-of-a-kind experience that will inspire and delight through pieces like A Bar at the Folies-Bergere and Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear.

At around 530 paintings, the collection at The Courtauld Gallery is fairly small when compared to some of the major galleries and museums around Europe; however, the quality of the work is impeccable, recognizable and contains some of the most prominent artists in history. This location is a wonderful place to spend a few hours or the whole day browsing through and appreciating a truly fantastic collection of artwork.
