world-famous Old Master, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, and an outstanding prints
and drawings collection featuring works by Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Cézanne and Turner. The
collection includes around 530 paintings, 7000 drawings and 15,000 prints as well as significant
holdings of medieval, Renaissance and modern sculpture, ceramics, metalwork, furniture and textiles.
The gallery's unique and intimate atmosphere reflects its origins as a "collection of collections",
largely formed through a series of major gifts and bequests made by some of the leading collectors
of the 19th and 20th centuries. These include Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947), Roger Fry (1866-1934),
Thomas Gambier Parry (1816-88), Viscount Lee of Fareham (1868-1947) and Count Antoine Seilern
(1901-78). To reflect the importance of these individual collections, the displays at the Courtauld Institute
of Art Gallery are currently arranged by collector. Offering a fresh look at well-known masterpieces from
the collection, this installation presents fascinating insights into the tastes of individual collectors, as
well as the aesthetic debates which informed the periods in which the core collections were formed.
