The National Gallery in London is one of the best art galleries in the world. Another fantastic gallery is the Courtauld Gallery in London, but it is closed for renovation work at the moment. So, what better to do with some of the pictures from the Courtauld Gallery in this period, than to let them be on display in the National Gallery in London?
Since the start of September 2018, the exhibition “Courtauld Impressionists: From Manet to Cézanne” has been on display in the National Gallery. It will be there until January 19th in 2019, so you still have some months left to visit the exhibition if it sounds interesting.
It is the first time since 1948 that the National Gallery will portray important Impressionist paintings from the Courtauld Gallery, and who knows when it will happen again. If you visit the exhibition you will discover more than 40 works from Daumier to Bonnard.
Visitors will also get more knowledge about Samuel Courtauld, and get an understanding of his vision, taste, and motivation for selecting the images he selected.
Cézanne’s Card Players and Man with a Pipe
Some of the most famous paintings that will be on display from the Courtauld Gallery are Cézanne’s Card Players and Man with a Pipe, Toulouse-Lautrec’s Jane Avril in the Entrance to the Moulin Rouge, Renoir’s La Loge, Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère and Seurat’s Young Woman Powdering Herself.
There will be pictures from the National Gallery displayed next to the pictures from the Courtauld Gallery.
Since this is a temporary exhibition an entrance fee of 7,5 GBP has to be paid. Most parts of the National Gallery is free to visit, but temporary exhibitions such as this one are not free to visit.
