MAKING A MARK: Art Exhibitions in Significant London Art Galleries

Janice K. Johnson

Significant London Art Galleries are those that are well known – but are not
as big or as significant as the major/national art museums and galleries which
I covered in the last post

This is a summary of the art exhibitions this Autumn / Winter in 

  • the Courtauld Gallery
  • Dulwich Art Gallery
  • Royal Academy of Arts
  • Wallace Museum

To be frank, I’m actually quite disappointed by what’s on offer this Autumn. There’s nothing which is making me jump up and down with excitement!

Other art galleries include:

  • Barbican Art Gallery
  • Hayward Gallery
  • Serpentine Galleries
  • Whitechapel Gallery

But these often have exhibitions I’m not much interested in. However, if you love contemporary art by international artists in various new manifestations they can be a good place to visit.


The Courtauld Gallery, Shop and Art Café are all cashless

The Permanent Collection

The Courtauld’s Permanent Collection is EXCELLENT.
Personally I
periodically go to see the Collection rather than the exhibitions,
although the latter can be interesting. I haven’t been since the
refurbishment of the galleries but I’m not looking forward to lots of
plain white walls.

From the Virtual Tour of the Permanent Collection

The Courtauld’s much-loved permanent collection ranges from the
Middle Ages to the 20th century and has been completely
redisplayed and reinterpreted. These enhanced spaces have allowed
The Courtauld to give visitors greater insight into this
world-leading collection than ever before.

I really like the artwork at the Wallace Collection. I think it’s one of the underestimated collections in London

has been portrayed in cinema for nearly a century.
