Looking at the ViewThrough its free exhibition, Looking at the View, Tate Britain invites visitors to contemplate landscape and the way artists have influenced our view of it over the last 300 years. Featuring works by artists as diverse as Tacita Dean, Julian Opie and JMW Turner, this exhibition which consists entirely of works from the Tate collection, presents works from a sizeable stretch of time, drawing surprising parallels in the way artists have looked at the scenery that surrounds them.

 

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
