Join Nick Pearson for an informal, jargon-free, slide-lecture preview of its collection of 19th-century Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, from names like Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and others. Thoroughly spoil yourself with this feast of great French early modern art and paintings from the best permanent collection of this period outside of Paris! Courtauld Gallery is now open for viewing again, following the closure for some years for major renovation work on the building in Somerset House.
