British Baroque: Power and IllusionIn 2020, Tate Britain presents the first-ever exhibition to focus on baroque culture in Britain, which remains far lesser known in comparison to the pomp and glory of European baroque. British Baroque: Power and Illusion focuses on key historic moments such as the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 and the death of Queen Anne in 1714 in order to shine a spotlight on a much overlooked era and a time of momentous change in Britain. Works on loan from stately homes are shown in public for the very first time in order to explore how art was used to project a vision of power within the recently restored monarchy.

 

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
