Product Description

In this three-part series Tim Marlow presents a unique insight into The Courtauld Institute, one of the finest small museums in the world. Its collection stretches from the early Renaissance into the 20th century and is particularly famous for its magnificent Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. In his engaging and informative style, Tim Marlow presents his pick of the art on display in the Gallery, each episode focusing on a number of key works from The Courtaulds remarkable collection. He also takes an exclusive look at The Courtaulds ongoing restoration work and explores the evolution of the collection itself.

The Courtauld Institute of Art and its Gallery were co-founded in 1932 by the industrialist and art collector Samuel Courtauld. His own exceptional collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painting has been supplemented over the decades by extraordinary gifts and bequests, including the most important collection of Rubens paintings and drawings in Britain.

By RR Waller TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 Sept. 2011
Format: DVD
For anyone who has not strolled down the Strand and turned into the Courtauld, this is an excellent introduction and one which will encourage viewers to go there. Somerset House is worth a visit too.

Unlike one reviewer who finds his extra long clothes a distraction, I have not noticed his clothes. He is too interesting for that. This DVD is a collections of his television programmes shown on Sky Arts and they are excellent examinations of the Courtauld Collections. His attention to detail leaves little unnoticed and his facility with language makes him an excellent guide and critic. Not everyone can express complex ideas about art while in the glare of the lights.

Marlowe can and does. Highly recommended.

Tim Marlow is easy to listen to, and the disc has three 24 minute episodes. The series is obviously designed for showing with commercial breaks as it has a tendency to repeat itself during an episode. As well at looking at paintings like the fantastic "A Bar at the Folies-Bergere" he also give us a peek at the conservation department. One episode is particularly useful for explaining the meanings behind the religious works you might be tempted to hurry past.

The Courtauld Gallery is a wonderful selection of art works in London's Somerset House; it sits with the Courtauld Institute which is one of the foremost institutions for studying history of art. Unfortunately this DVD is something of an abomination. There is a good amount of art history in it, but the general quality is very poor. On our copy the sound reproduction was horrendous. Sorry - cannot recommend this product (though I can recommend the Gallery).
