The Courtauld Gallery acknowledges the generosity of an anonymous patron in supporting this exhibition.

Friends and their guests are invited to meet Sarah Hyde, the Curator of the Courtauld’s Prints & Drawings Collection, and learn at first hand about Piranesi’s monumental Prison series, Canaletto’s etchings of Venice and Tiepolo’s etchings on a fantasy theme. The group will explore each artist’s technique and development.

Tickets are £5 (£4 Friends) and places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please use the enclosed booking form, along with an SAE.


The Value of Art
Wednesday 30th June 1999 6.30-7.30pm, Print & Drawings Room, Courtauld Gallery
Sponsored by Schroder Investment Management Limited

This is an ideal opportunity for Friends and their guests to view this unique exhibition, which tackles head-on the ways we are affected by knowing their price when we look at works of art. Sarah Hyde, the exhibition’s curator, will explain how the works were selected from the Courtauld’s collections of paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints and ceramics. Guests will have the opportunity to explore how and why their responses are conditioned by the relative values.

Tickets are £5 (£4 Friends) and places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please use the enclosed booking form, along with an SAE.
