What beer is the barmaid serving? Take the great British art quiz

Cultural institutions are in lockdown across the UK – but you can still explore their collections with our fiendish daily quiz. Today it’s set by the Courtauld Gallery in London

This quiz is brought to you in collaboration with Art UK, the online home for the UK’s public art collections, showing art from more than 3,000 venues and by 45,000 artists. Each day, a different collection on Art UK will set the questions.

Today, our questions are set by the Courtauld Gallery. The Courtauld is based in the magnificent 18th-century setting of Somerset House in London. The gallery forms part of the Courtauld Institute of Art, the world’s leading centre for the study of the history and conservation of art and architecture. It was founded by the pioneering collector and philanthropist Samuel Courtauld in 1932.

The Courtauld houses a celebrated collection of major paintings, drawings and decorative arts from the early Renaissance to the 20th century. It is home to some of the finest impressionist and post-impressionist art in the world, including masterpieces by Manet, Monet, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Cézanne. The gallery is currently undergoing an ambitious transformation project, but will be reopening in 2021.
