The repository of British art

The Tate Britain museum in London, England

The Tate Britain houses the national collections of British art (15th century to today), which means room after room filled by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Stubbs, Blake, Constable, and especially Hogarth and J. M. W. Turner.

Since the gallery’s modern art collection decamped to Bankside (see Tate Modern), the British collection has expanded to fill the entirety of the museum’s traditional seat in a neoclassical building on Millbank.
