Courtauld Institute of ArtJU_admin
The Courtauld is an internationally recognized teaching and research institution devoted to art history, curating, and conservation. It is also a public gallery, displaying one of the world’s great art collections at central London’s historic Somerset House. Major funding from the Edmond J. Safra Foundation underpinned the Institute’s operations at a decisive moment in its history and played a key role in enabling The Courtauld to become an independent college of the University of London. Edmond J. Safra Scholarships for postgraduates have helped talented young scholars gain valuable training at the early stage of their careers.
Following a recent transformative modernization of its premises, The Courtauld Gallery now features a comfortable, vibrant home for students and scholars and a more welcoming destination for visitors. Part of the new Learning Centre, the Edmond and Lily Safra Studio provides a dedicated, flexible space for education, community engagement, and public programs.
