NOTES: The North Block of Somerset House, designed by Sir William Chambers and built in 1776-1796, was restored to house the Courtauld Institute and its picture collections. The pictures are hung in Chambers's Fine Rooms while the Institute's library has been accommodated in converted vaults beneath the courtyard.
