The Courtauld Institute Gallery has one of the most important collections in Britain, including world-famous Old Master, Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings, and an outstanding prints and drawings collection featuring works by Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Cuzanne and Turner. The collection includes around 530 paintings, 7,000 drawings and 15,000 prints, as well as significant holdings of mediaeval, Renaissance and modern sculpture, ceramics, metalwork, furniture and textiles. The gallery's unique and intimate atmosphere reflects its origins as a 'collection of collections', largely formed through a series of major gifts and bequests made by some of the leading collectors of the 19th and 20th centuries. These include Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947), Roger Fry (1866-1934), Thomas Gambier Parry (1816-1888), Viscount Lee of Fareham (1868-1947) and Count Antoine Seilern (1901-1978).
