Additional Notes

From The Publisher*With entries on over 170 artworks representing the unrivaled collection at Tate Britain, this useful handbook provides a lively and informative introduction to the story of art in Britain over the last five hundred years. A concise and accessible guide, the handbook's publication coincides with the new chronological re-hanging of the Tate Collection. Presented in a similar chronological fashion, the works in this guide provide fascinating insight into British history as well as the evolution of British art. Brief descriptions accompany each work.
