In this series Tim Marlow presents a unique insight into the Courtauld Institute and Gallery, one of the finest small museums in the world. It's collection stretches from the early Renaissance into the 20th century and is particularly famous for it's array of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. In his engaging and informative style, Tim will present his pick of the art on display in the galleries, each episode focusing on a number of key works from the Courtauld's remarkable collection, from the precious golden altarpieces of the early Renaissance painter Bernado Daddi to Edouard Manet's enigmatic work, a Bar at the Folies-Bergère. Tim will journey through art history, exploring the imagery and iconography, the technique and the cultural context that inform what are some of the most profound works of Western Art. Tim will also take an exclusive look at the Courtauld's ongoing restoration work as well as explore the evolution of the collection itself. The Courtauld Institute of Art was founded in 1932 by the industrialist and art collector Samuel Courtauld, along with the statesman and collector viscount Lee of Fareham and the lawyer Sir Robert Witt. The three were brought together by a common wish to improve the understanding of the visual arts in Britain. Samuel Courtauld's own exceptional collection of French Impressionist and Post Impressionist painting has been supplimented over the decades by key gifts and bequests, including Count Antoine Seilern's extrodinary collection of paintings and drawings by Peter Paul Rubens as well as Thomas Gambier Parry's bequest of early Italian Renaissance painting.
