An exhibition showcasing masterpieces of the impressionist and post-impressionist schools from London’s Courtauld Gallery, which was founded in 1932 to house the art collection of industrialist Samuel Courtauld. Around 60 select works of painting and sculpture are on display, including van Gogh’s Arles landscape, Flowering Orchards, said to look like a scene from Japan. There is also Renoir’s late 19th century Parisian genre scene The Theatre Box, Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, Gauguin’s Nevermore, whose secrets were revealed through scientific analysis, and Modigliani’s Female Nude.
