“The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism” – Louis Vuitton
The Courtauld Collection is a gathering of 110 works, including 60 paintings and graphic pieces. Most of these are mainly conserved in the Gourtauld Gallery or in different international public and private collections. The Courtauld Gallery was founded by Samuel Courtauld, an English industrial. With this collection he wanted to show his love for (post)impressionism, so you get to see works from Cézanne, van Gogh, Renoir, Gaugin and Manet. Most of these are French masters, no surprise if you know that Samuel Courtauld had French roots and saw France as his second home. You can also visit a set of ten watercolors from William Turner, owned by the brother of Samuel, Stephen Courtauld.
