Radical Drawing: Works From Coventry And The Courtauld

 ‘Radical Drawing: Works From Coventry And The Courtauld’ is the latest collaboration between the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and The Courtauld Gallery, and will be on show from now until Sunday, January 19. 

Inspired by collector, philanthropist and founder of The Courtauld Gallery, Samuel Courtauld, whose family established textile businesses across the UK in regions including Coventry, Wolverhampton and Braintree, the partnership means visitors will be able to enjoy works by renowned artists’ long into the future, having already seen paintings by the likes of Degas and Cézanne on display at the Herbert.


The exhibition showcases a series of works from the last 400 years, many of which have never been on show before.
The artworks, taken from the collections of The Courtauld Gallery, the University of Warwick and the Herbert’s own collection, include works by George Romney, Camille Pissarro, Pablo Picasso, Art & Language, Barbara Walker and Miriam de Búrca.
Also on display are objects from the Herbert’s collections linked to the Courtaulds factory in Coventry, and a film produced for the exhibition featuring former employees of Courtaulds Ltd discussing their experience of working for this significant employer in the city.
