Illuminating Objects

This collaboration between the Science Museum and The Courtauld shed light on rarely seen artworks from the Courtauld collection.

Works displayed through the Illuminating Objects programme were on view at the Science Museum in 2018-21 while the Courtauld’s home at Somerset House underwent major renovation.

A final object was shown in a collaborative display when the Courtauld reopened in 2021. Read more on the Courtauld website.

This allowed a series of precious objects to be shown in a new context, highlighting their scientific and technological histories.
