I’ve always loved the building of the Yale Center – Louis Kahn’s last masterpiece which he was working on when he was found dead in Grand Central Station: a set of cool and lucid, daylit spaces, half domestic, half institutional, encouraging dedicated looking.
There’s more sculpture than I remember, including a very beautiful terracotta Rysbrack bust of Peter Tillemans, a fellow Fleming:-
This is Benjamin West in his self-portrait with his family:-
A Self-portrait of Daniel Stringer who was a student in the RA Schools in its early years:-
Barry’s Education of Achilles, shown at the RA in 1772 (he was elected in 1773):-
That was as much as I could see before lunch, other than the grand interior spaces of the building:-
