Owner description: The Courtauld Gallery is one of the finest small museums in the world. Its collection stretches from the early Renaissance into the 20th century and is particularly renowned for the unrivalled collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. The Gallery also holds an outstanding collection of drawings and prints and fine example of sculpture and decorative arts.

The Courtauld is a wonderful experience thanks to the quality of the works,its setting in the gorgeous Somerset House and the way the works are displayed.
Contrary to other museums all paintings are properly lit ,the explanations are interesting, easy to read and at eye level,even the provenance is legible(I wish I could say the same for the Louvre the Victoria and Albert and many others).
It reminds you of the Frick in New York.

Amazing selection of paintings and an interesting exhibition on Lely. The cafe was good too. I was impressed that the gallery contained so many famous paintings.

Excellent collection for the discerning impressionist art lover. Somerset House always worth a visit too!

As lovers of art I do not know how we did not know about this gallery before. The building itself is a work of art.
