Courtauld Gallery Virtual Tour


The virtual tour uses a new photographic technique to show The Courtauld Gallery in exceptional close-up quality.

You can roam each room of the Gallery, as it was before it temporarily closed in September 2018, and zoom in to look closely at masterpieces from our collection such as Vincent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear or Édouard Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, from individual brush strokes to the texture of the paint.

Please note that The Courtauld Gallery and Courtauld Shop are closed while we undertake a major transformation project called Courtauld Connects.  This virtual tour shows the Gallery before it closed.
