Modern Drawings: The Karshan Gift

The Exhibition Galleries
19 Nov 2021 – 9 Jan 2022

The opening display in the new temporary exhibition galleries will showcase the gift of 24 important modern and post-war drawings presented by artist Linda Karshan in memory of her husband, Howard Karshan.

This outstanding group of drawings features work by European and American masters including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Gerhard Richter, Louis Soutter and Cy Twombly.

One of the most significant gifts of art to The Courtauld in a generation, the Karshan gift will transform the collection by extending its major historical holdings fully into the twentieth century. Aside from Cézanne, none of the artists included in the gift has previously been represented in the collection.

This display is included in the admission ticket to The Courtauld Gallery.
