Friday, 27 September, 2019 to Friday, 11 September, 2020

The Courtauld Gallery is pleased to announce a touring exhibition of ten remarkable pieces of Islamic metalwork dating from the 13th to the 16th centuries. The objects include some of the finest examples of this intricate craft from modern-day Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt and Turkey, and will travel to four venues in the UK from September 2019 to January 2021. The Courtauld Gallery’s temporary closure during a major restoration project known as Courtauld Connects has created the opportunity for the gallery to share these stunning and precious pieces from its collection with museums around the country. The tour complements major loans that the gallery makes through its Regional Partnership Programme.
