A Visit to Somerset House

Somerset House is home to the Courtauld Institute of Art a wonderful collection of art spanning the work of Peter Paul Ruben’s to Modigliani.  Eduard Manet’s famous work, A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, is one of its substantial acquisitions.

Here are photos from my visit on January 27, 2012
