This beautifully restored gallery on the 3rd Floor will stage carefully curated displays from The Courtauld’s collection of 20th century works of art.
The opening display will be Oskar Kokoschka’s extraordinary, large-scale painting The Myth of Prometheus. This epic work was made in 1950 and responds to the aftermath of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War.
Highlights of The Courtauld's 20th century collection
A selection of photographs by the celebrated photographer Lee Miller of Kokoschka at work on the painting will also be on show, together with other canvases by the artist.
Also on the 3rd Floor is a new space dedicated to the work of the Bloomsbury Group, a collective of early 20th century avant-garde artists who ran an influential design company called the Omega Workshops. This room is decorated to evoke the Group’s aesthetic and offers a rich display of paintings, drawings, furniture and ceramics.
