Published: Tuesday 11th of December 2012
Touted as "one of the finest small museums in the world," the Courtauld allows visitors to delve into its remarkable art collection, which encompasses famous Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces.
Currently showing is the Peter Lely: A Lyrical Vision exhibition, which has received rave reviews in the high-end media.
Peter Lely was England's leading painter during the fascinating period in between the Civil War and the reign of Charles II.
He is known mainly for his breathtaking depictions of court beauties, but this exhibition explores a lost group of his early works.
These exciting and inspiring works look at the worlds of shepherds, nymphs and musicians, and were painted during the turbulence of the English Civil War and its aftermath.
