The gallery contains a number of significant Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, though the collection ranges from the early Renaissance to the 20th century, and bills itself as one of the finest small museums in the world.
Art treasures of note include Renoir's La Loge, important works by Matisse, Derain and Dufy, and other world-famous pieces like Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.
The gallery is open daily from 10am until 6pm, with occasional late openings on Thursdays. Admission is £5, or free before 2pm on Mondays. There's also the usual cafe and shop. For more information, visit http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/gallery/
