The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler gallery is named after American philanthropists who made a sizeable donation towards its construction.

Unseen, the exhibition which will run until 29th March, features drawings which have not bee seen at the Courtauld for 20 years including 15th-century Renaissance sketches to a 1962 piece by the Pop artist Larry Rivers.

A spokeswoman for the project said: "The new gallery represents a significant step forward in the exhibition of prints and drawings."

"It's a small, flexible space for display and investigation rather than a dominant space for blockbuster shows."
