LONDON | Tate Britain is located in Millbank, and is one of the largest museums in the UK, housing a diverse range of historical and contemporary British art. The building, which opened in 1897, was built in the classical style, and the Clore Gallery, completed in 1987, is considered an important example of postmodern architecture.
The timeline of art exhibited at Tate Britain is large, spanning Tudor-era artwork from the 1500s up to the present. The permanent collection is free to view, and there are a number of rotating and special exhibitions on at any given time. There are several rooms dedicated to one artist, however these, like the rest of the museum’s collection, rotate. Artists on display include well known names like Tracey Emin, John Latham, Douglas Gordon, John Constable, and William Blake.
For modern British art, make sure to visit Tate Modern in Bankside.
