The BP British Art Displays get a spring makeover with a dramatic revamp of the collection and a shift in the chronological ordering of the artworks, dating from 1540 to the present. In addition, there will be focus rooms exhibiting highlights from particular artists and periods. Henry Moore, William Blake and J.M.W Turner all receive a space dedicated to their work, and for the first time, there will be a gallery dedicated entirely to photography.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
