London attractions: Head to the magnificent Courtauld Gallery
Published: Sunday 9th of September 2012
People looking to enjoy one of the very best London attractions will be pleasantly surprised by what they find at the exceptional Courtauld Gallery.
With collections that stretch from the Early Renaissance masterpieces to 20th century modernism, this is a one-stop shop for art lovers of all movements and styles.
It particularly excels in Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, which is one of the best collections in the world. Here you can find exquisite works from the likes of Monet, Cezanne and Gauguin.
For 20th century art, the gallery has works by Matisse, Derain, Duffy and Kandinsky, while those of a Rubens and Baroque persuasion can enjoy paintings by Claude and Van Dyck.
Visitors heading there next month will be able to enjoy a brilliant new exhibition from Peter Lely, entitled A Lyrical Vision.
Lely was one of the most prominent painters between the English Civil War and the reign of Charles ll, a truly tumultuous period of history.
The Courtauld Gallery is a leading centre for the study of art history and conservation.
