Somerset House Writer in Residence, Romesh Gunesekera, hosts the second series of Picture This at Somerset House: Writers’ Talks in The Courtauld Gallery.
Six eminent writers take inspiration from the remarkable permanent collection in The Courtauld Gallery, each choosing a painting which particularly moves, engages or challenges them.
Each evening three writers present their personal reflections in a 20 minute talk to a small audience, who will also be invited to a private view of The Courtauld Gallery's collection. Talks will be followed by a Q&A session and a chance to meet the writers.
The ticket price includes evening admission to The Courtauld Gallery; gallery stools will be provided.
"The Courtauld Gallery is one of the most consistently inspiring spaces in London."
