The Courtauld Gallery - September at The Courtauld Gallery


The Courtauld Gallery September 2017
Last chance to see - William Henry Hunt: Country People
★★★★ Time Out
★★★★ Londonist
Drawings Room display
Until 17 September 2017
This focused display is the first exhibition to investigate William Henry Hunt’s depiction of rural figures in his work of the 1820s and 1830s. It takes its lead from a watercolour in The Courtauld Gallery’s permanent collection, The Head Gardener, which is shown alongside significant loans from institutions and private collections.

Friends get closer to our community of art leaders and help shape the future of art history. They receive an exclusive set of benefits including free entry to The Courtauld Gallery and invites to special events including our summer party. From 1 September, we have teamed up with Somerset House Trust to bring Friends free entry to their art exhibitions and priority booking for Skate, the Summer Series and Film4 Summer Screen.
What's on at The Courtauld Gallery
Special Display
Until 21 September
★★★★ Londonist
The Courtauld Gallery cares for an important collection of early twentieth century Bloomsbury Group works, including paintings, collages, drawings, watercolours, and designs and decorative arts from the Omega Workshops. Most of the collection was bequeathed by Roger Fry to the newly formed Courtauld Institute of Art in 1935; Fry was the central figure of the group, which included artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. This special display brings together a wide-ranging selection of work by this remarkable group.
19 October 2017 – 21 January 2018

This exhibition will bring together an outstanding group of portraits by ChaΓ―m Soutine (1893-1943). Soutine was one of the leading painters in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s and was seen by many as the heir to Vincent van Gogh. In the early 1920s, he became fascinated by the cooks and waiting staff of French hotels and restaurants, attired in boldly coloured uniforms. The portraits of these humble figures Soutine painted over the following decade helped to establish his reputation. This major show is the first time Soutine has been the subject of a significant exhibition in the United Kingdom for 35 years.
