Tate Britain: British art from Hogarth to the Turner Prize
Perhaps one of London's most traditional art galleries, Tate Britain stands on the banks of the River Thames and displays mostly British works of art from 1500 to the present day. Here you can find paintings by William Hogarth, as well as 20th century sculpture from Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Francis Bacon. Tate Britain also dedicates three galleries to the UK's most influential Romantic artists, Blake, Constable and most predominantly, the Turner Collection, which comprises around 300 watercolours by the artist. Every year the Turner Prize is also held here, celebrating new contemporary British art since 1984. The Tate displays the finalists of the prize every year between October and January, with the winner being announced in December. The gallery is free, although the Turner Prize and other special exhibitions have a fee. Starkly different from Tate Britain, both in terms of the collection and the building's architecture, is Tate Modern, which stands on the South Bank east along the Thames.
