The Courtauld Institute of Art houses one of the most significant collections of works on paper in Britain, with approximately 7,000 drawings and watercolours and 24,000 prints ranging from the late Middle Ages to the 20th century avant-garde.

It includes a number of internationally renowned masterpieces by artists such as Dürer, Michelangelo, Rubens, Rembrandt, Cézanne and Turner as well as providing a broad account of major national schools and periods.

Executed on paper, drawings and prints are highly sensitive to light, and as a result they cannot be on permanent public display. However, selections from the collection are shown regularly in a dedicated space the Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery in The Courtauld Gallery.
