            The Witt Library was invaluable before the Internet took over.

            The Courtauld is indubitably the best place to study the History of Art. In my day we were in the sumptuous Adam designed building that was home to the Home (pronounced hume) family once owned by Samuel Courtauld with luminaries teaching us such as the Man Booker prize winning novelist Anita Brookner. Now it is based at the amazing Somerset House along side King's College, London and the London Hermitage Collection. Its own stunning and special collection hangs in galleries open to the public and to its students and is a must do for anybody coming to London for cultural reasons. Its alumni events programme is enviable and it has been supported by some of the greatest philanthropists. What is more that with all that in its favour it has the most rigorous academic programme in the history of architecture, painting, sculpture, the applied arts and restoration quite apart from its demands that students of the BA course can do languages such as French, German, Spanish and Italian. A world class institution of which I am proud to be a graduate. And Home House is still a beautiful building but now closed to all but the members of its private members club. So Anthony Blunt even you could not tarnish its shine.
