Sixth Form Tate Britain Guided Tour

14 JANUARY 2022


Tate Britain

Tate Britain has a superb collection of paintings that trace the development of art in England from the 16th century to today.

We will begin in the Tudor court and discuss the iconography of Queen Elizabeth before looking at Anthony van Dyck and his impact on British portrait. The British school of art began in the 18th century with William Hogarth and the establishment of the Royal Academy which dominated artistic taste in England until a group of young artists – the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – broke all the rules and changed artistic direction. Into the 20th century we will look at the impact British artists had on the world stage with great examples by David Hockney and Francis Bacon and sculpture by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. We will end looking at contemporary British art – always great scope for a discussion!

Meeting point: Outside the main entrance of the Tate Britain – Millbank, London SW1P 4RG
