Objects in Focus: Decorative Arts
from the Courtauld Collection
Project coordinated by Dr Alexandra Gerstein at the Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House from June to August 2010.
The 'Objects in Focus' display in The Courtauld Gallery was curated by four postgraduate students from The Courtauld Institute of Art. The aim of the project was to research and display little-known objects from the Gallery’s collection of decorative arts. The objects were selected to form two displays in Room 5 of the Gallery; the themes were ‘Portraits in the Everyday’ and ‘Real and Imagined Nature’.
