This gallery is often missed by visitors as it's the entrance arch to Somerset House but please do visit.

For such a small building it has an amazing collection of art from Icons across Impressionists to a large collection of furniture.

I was lucky enough to pop in one day as I had some time to spare and it has now turned into one of my all time favourites and I go back each time there are new things to see.

“SUPERB COLLECTION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

The coutauld collection is superb and they hold frequent special exhibitions usually based on one of the paintings from the collection with in depth analysis. Usually not crowded which is very different to all the other major London galleries. A real pleasure to visit for art lovers.

This is a smallish collection with world-class art and a good range of periods - in a beautiful historic building. Worth a visit!
