Samuel Courtauld in the '20s
20 June – 8 September 2013
The Courtauld holds the UK’s most important collection of works by the Post-Impressionist master Paul Gauguin.
This was assembled by pioneering collector Samuel Courtauld and in this special display his collection of Gauguin’s paintings, works on paper and sculpture is brought together for the first time.
The Young DÜRER: DRAWING The FIGURE
17 October 2013 – 12 January 2014
This exhibition examines the figure drawings of the young Albrecht Dürer and in particular his Wanderjahre or journeyman years during which he travelled widely and was exposed to a range of new experiences.
Dürer would go on to redirect the course of German art and his drawings, in particular, demonstrate the significance of these early influences in shaping his ambitious artistic personality.
The exhibition brings together outstanding drawings by Dürer from international collections as well as rare works by precursors and contemporaries who remain little known in the UK.
