Ruin LustWhat is it about ruins that makes them so endlessly fascinating and so powerfully moving? The 18th century was mad about them (painting romantic pictures of them and even going as far as having decorative ruins built as features the grand landscapes of stately homes). In the 19th century they were associated with the dark effects of industrialisation and the end of the old way of life. And in the 20th century they held memories of world wars and economic decline. In this exhibition, Tate Britain explores the aesthetic potency of the ruin and the theme of ruination through British art form the 17th century to the present day, where a ruin is at once an echo of the past and a glimpse of the future.

 

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
