Located in the heart of central London, along the banks of the Thames, the Courtauld is an absolute gem of an art gallery.
The gallery is inside Somerset House, which is itself worth a visit. There are three floors, each devoted to an exquisite collection of art. The staircase that leads to the galleries is itself a beauty, and I just wished I’d brought my camera along.
I started on the top floor, and worked my way down. I’m not an expert on art, but there were a lot of heavyweights hung up on the walls.
