Tate britain

DEFINITION

The official national gallery of British art, it is located in London on Millbank on the Thames River. The museum went through a transition period of being the home of the British art collection of sugar magnate, Henry Tate, who funded the building, to one that housed both British and international art. Since the late 20th century, Tate Britain has returned to being the collection for British art only. In 1987, the J.M.W. Turner collection of 300 oil paintings became a major addition to Tate Britain. Three other museums handle overflow from what seemed out-of-control expansion of Tate Britain. The Tate Modern, built in 1990 on the south bank of the Thames River houses the international modern collection; Tate Liverpool, 1988, and Tate St. Ives in 1993, house additional works from Tate Britain.
