Acknowledgement of your support, if desired
"Knowing that I am contributing to the ongoing support of The Courtauld and being able to visit exceptional works of art and exhibitions at my leisure, made becoming a Friend irresistible."Bill Nighy, Actor and longstanding Friend
The Courtauld is internationally recognised as a leading centre for the research and teaching of the history, conservation and curation of visual art with a world-renowned gallery and collection at its heart.
Our global community forms a creative and cultural powerhouse of influential thought leaders and change makers, including illustrious alumni, expert conservators and curators, leading academics, and art enthusiasts. We are brought together by a shared interest to engage with, learn and generate new ideas about art history and the impact art has on society.
As a Friend, your support will enable us to continue our mission to make art available for all and ensure The Courtauld remains a place to inspire new thinking about art and culture for generations to come.
Gift a whole year of amazing art experiences
Our Friends e-gift vouchers make a unique and inspiring gift for any art lover and while they enjoy priority benefits such as free, unlimited entry to our collection displays and exhibitions, including the Morgan Stanley Exhibition: Edvard Munch. Masterpieces from Bergen (27 May – 4 September 2022), exclusive events, discounts, offers, curated content and more, your gift will help safeguard one of the world’s greatest art collections and support our students – the curators, conservators and art historians of the future.
