Tate Britain is the home of British art. They have just recently rehung their galleries so that even repeat visitors will get a fresh look at the Tate collection. The British art displays are divided and presented in several ways, with large areas displaying historic, twentieh century and contemporary British art while special displays keep in focus individual artists or a specific period of British art. Featured here are some of my favourites from Tate Britain.

Peter Doig : Echo Lake 1998
John Singer Sargent : Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose 1885-6
Lucian Freud : Girl with a Kitten 1947
