Home to some
of the world's most famous Impressionist paintings the Courtauld Gallery collection
was put together by the textile magnate Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947). His aim
in giving the collection to the Institute that bears his name, was to provide
students of art history with outstanding examples that they could study. The collection
is situated in the Strand Block of Somerset House, where the central courtyard
seen opposite is often used for open-air opera and other events in the summer.
The collection consists of 15th and 16th century paintings including Renaissance
masterpieces such as Botticelli's Holy Trinity with Saint John and Mary Magdalen.
