Guercino Draws the Crowds


“What the Courtauld does best... focusing on artists who aren’t household names but who richly deserve exhibitions of this calibre.” The Daily Telegraph was just one of many national papers to sing the praises of Guercino: Mind to Paper, on display from February to May 2007.

This critical and popular success would not have been possible without the financial support of the Friends of the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Guercino Supporters Circle: Agnew’s, Jean-Luc Baroni, Christie’s, Colnaghi – Katrin Bellinger, Columbia Foundation, Day & Faber, Kate de Rothschild, Simon C. Dickinson Ltd, Hazlitt Gooden & Fox, Italian Cultural Institute, The Matthiesen Foundation, Flavia Ormond Fine Arts and Thomas Williams Fine Art Ltd.

With this support, the Courtauld has once again been a welcome remedy for ‘blockbusteritis’.
