The works in the Courtauld Gallery very rarely travel. But this September, as the Courtauld Gallery closes for a major redevelopment project, 26 masterpieces from Courtauld's collection will go on display alongside major Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings from the National Gallery's own collection, acquired with help from the Courtauld Fund.
This landmark exhibition, curated in 12 sections – each devoted to a different artist – traces the development of modern French painting from the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century; and explores the development of Courtauld's vision, taste, and motivation as he shaped two phenomenal collections: one private, and one public.
Courtauld Impressionists: From Manet to Cézanne presents a rare opportunity to celebrate the cultural legacy of one of the greatest collectors of the twentieth century.
