Masterpieces of Impressionism: The Courtauld Collection

September 10 (Tue) – December 15 (Sun), 2019

Masterpieces of Impressionism: The Courtauld Collection Poster

An exhibition of Impressionist and Post-impressionist art from the collection of London’s Courtauld Gallery. Founded in 1932 upon a collection built by industrialist Samuel Courtauld, the Courtauld Gallery is at the heart of the Courtauld Institute of Art, the world’s leading center for research into art history and conservation.
The exhibition, drawing from the Institute’s researches, will bring the works to life for viewers with explanation of the artist’s methods as revealed by the artist’s words, circumstances surrounding the works, and scientific investigation. Some 60 carefully selected paintings and sculptures will be featured, including Vincent Van Gogh’s landscape of Arles influenced by Japanese landscapes, Peach Trees in Blossom. Also included will be Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Theatre Box and Edouard Manet A Bar at the Folies-Bergère—works capturing the aura of modern life in late 19th-century Paris—and Gauguin’s Nevermore and Modigliani’s Female Nude, paintings whose secrets have been unlocked by scientific investigation.
