The Courtauld Gallery contains one of London's greatest art
collections, with masterpieces by Monet, Gauguin and Van Gogh as
well as wonderful works from 18th-century England and Renaissance
Italy, all displayed in the palatial rooms of Somerset House.
Recently reopened after a three year, £57 million refurbishment,
the revamped galleries look better than ever, with extra exhibition
space, an extended shop and café, and they are still quieter than
the National Gallery or Tate.
