From the Baroque to Today: Recent acquisitions of Works on Paper
Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery: 23 February - 27 May 2024 
This display will showcase a selection of twenty-four prints and drawings, spanning the late 17th to the early 21st centuries, acquired by The Courtauld since 2018. Nearly half of the works are by women artists with highlights including a pair of prints by Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), the first by this major Impressionist artist to be represented in the collection. 

Jasper Johns: The Seasons: Project Space: 28 February - 12 May 2024 
Between 1984 and 1991, the pioneering American artist Jasper Johns (b.1930), focused on the theme of the four seasons and produced an ambitious and extensive body of work, including paintings, drawings and prints. Printmaking is one of Johns’ major preoccupations and this display reveals how he uses an array of techniques to create a collaging of imagery that is both evocative and mysterious.

The Griffin Catalyst Exhibition: Frank Auerbach. The Charcoal Heads: Denise Coates Exhibition Galleries: Until 27 May 2024
