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