To Tate Britain on Millbank . . . The Tate has just reopened its doors again after a two-year refurbishment. The result is simply stunning. There's an Art Deco-inspired circular staircase, an elegant rotunda balcony and a vaulted basement café serving the finest Jing tea.
Tate Britain is famous for its collections of Henry Moore, Constable, Turner, Blake and the Pre-Raphaelites.
For fun I bought six cards of some of the artworks which had impressed, intrigued and moved me the most. From left to right these pictures are: Henry Moore Pink and Green Sleepers Graphite, ink, gouache and wax on paper; Howard Hodgkin Rain Oil on wood; John Constable A Lane near Flatford Oil on paper laid on canvas; JMW Turner The Burning of the Houses of Parliament Watercolour; William Blake The Blighted Corn Wood engraving on paper; William Blake Newton Colour print, ink and watercolour on paper.
