An introduction to The Courtauld Print Room

About this event

The Courtauld, based at Somerset House on the Strand, is preparing to reopen at the end this year following a major transformation programme to restore its grandeur and create state-of-the-art facilities.

Before then, staff from The Courtauld’s Prints and Drawings Study Room welcome you to a presentation of some of the treasures in The Courtauld’s collection.

This event will include three talks that will give you a flavour of what the Prints and Drawings Study Room can provide and how it operates in less extraordinary circumstances. Expect rowdiness and revelry from Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1526–69), a female nude study by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780–1867) that scandalised 19th century sensibilities, and a festival of colour in a still life by Paul Cézanne (1839–1906). There will be time to answer your questions at the end.

Speakers include

• Charlotte Wytema - Print Room Assistant and PhD candidate

• Maarten Bassens - Getty Paper Project Curatorial Fellow in Drawings

• Jasmine Clark - Print Room Assistant and PhD candidate

• Saskia Rubin - Print Room Assistant and PhD candidate

• Ketty Gottardo – Martin Halusa Curator of Drawings, The Courtauld
