Courtauld Institute


Courtauld Institute
an art gallery in Somerset House, London, England, especially famous for its collection of Impressionist paintings. Donations by Viscount Lee of Fareham (1868–1947) and Samuel Courtauld (1876–1947), the founder of a large textile company in Britain, led to the founding of the Institute. It is also part of London University, where people study the history of art and architecture.
