Museum I Love : Somerset House, The Courtauld Gallery

The Courtauld Gallery is best known for its outstanding Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including celebrated works by Monet, Renoir, Degas and Gauguin as well as major group of paintings by Cezanne. The gallery is home to such iconic masterpieces as Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergere and Van Gogh's Self-potrait with Bandanged Ear (both are my favourite paintings!!). If you're into Impressionist paintings, you shouldn't miss going to this gallery :)
