Tate Britain

Younger, shinier Tate Modern gets all the attention, but Tate Britain remains my favorite museum in London because of the Turner-filled Clore Gallery. When JMW Turner died, he bequeathed his works to the nation. The Tate was the largest beneficiary; the haul was 300 oil paintings and 30,000 sketches and watercolors.

The current exhibition, “Romantics”, presents Romantic art in Britain and features loads of Constable, Fusell, Palmer and, of course, Turner.

Diarchy, Kenneth Armitage, 1957

The permanent collection’s galleries are spacious and filled with British art from the 16th century to the present.
