Tate Britain is the sister gallery to the contemporary Tate Modern, and covers the evolution of British art from the 1500’s through to the present day. Fans of classic British painters such as Constable, Turner, Gainsborough and Reynolds won’t know where to turn thanks to the gallery’s extensive collection of masterpieces found on almost every wall you turn to.
As a mostly historical site, the classics provide much of the content, but modern art can be found with pieces from the likes of Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud and Stanley Spencer to name a few. The Duveen Galleries are the home of the latest sculpture commissions, while the Archive Gallery lets visitors uncover the many stories behind the majestic work found in the building.
