5 April @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

somerset house

Marguerite from “LearnArtory” is back to take us on a cultural walk around Somerset House on “Art and Architecture”, followed by a tour of the new displays of the Courtauld Gallery highlights.

From Somerset Place, one of Tudor London’s greatest power houses to Denmark House, the official residence of Stuart queen consorts, Somerset House as it stands today was reconstructed in the 18th century as London’s first public building for administrative purposes. Here, in a palatial building of late neoclassical style, some of England’s earliest art societies occupied the lavish interiors today used by the Courtauld Gallery. This visit will explore the spaces and interiors of one of London’s most extravagant and historical cultural landmarks.
