Courtauld: Modern Art

The gem of the Courtauld’s collection of modern art is of course its Bar at the Folies-Bergère by Édouard Manet (for me, that is, in the context of my endless saga on the mirrors in art). I write about this painting in my mirror blog (see ), and here I only post the images of some of the works I found interesting and manages to take pictures of:

I was not the only one who was taking pictures; it’s really great that museums start allowing more and more often to take pictures of their collection – and what is more important, of people experiencing art.
