The Tate Britain Art Gallery
20 pics. The Tate Britain contains a wide range of artwork ranging from the classical to modern. It includes the Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse, which was inspired by the poem of Alfred Lord Tennyson (here ⇒) and worth reading. The Tate Britain’s Website ⇒
I’ve introduced a little enhancement to compensate for the loss of colour/detail over time, but not so much as to lose the sense of age. More advanced digital restoration of these pictures and a few more from other galleries can be found at In All Their Glory ⇒ .
There are several works by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood ⇒ which I particularly like for there vibrancy and detail which requires a patience born of dedication.
And, more historical works.
There are more paintings of Elizabeth I, together with their subtle meanings, at Hatfield House.
The Tate includes an entire wing dedicated to Turner. Here are just a few.
And, a good many items of classical appearance.
“What do you think of all this modern art then”. “Don’t ask me, I prefer heavy-metal, although I suppose Cranach the Elder wasn’t bad”.
“Some days one wonders if it’s worth getting out of bed”.
“Ow, my eye”.
“Last time I take you down the pub”.
And the dark shape just below is ~.
Thank you for coming and a drum roll for our next visit.
So, so beautiful!

I’m trying to gather the energy to go to the Tate Modern where I may have to look at an “installation”.
I try not to make judgements (something for every taste) but the thought is giving me tinnitus of the eyeballs. 🙂 🙂 🙂

It is a favourite of mine for the variety and quality of work.
It is also opposite the the MI5 pyramid building where James Bond lives..
Thanks for the visit and happy spring. 😀
