Today we returned to The Tate Britain to view the 20th century rooms. It’s an interesting collection considering The Tate Modern is supposed to house modern works. When does modern begin? When does it end? As the Tate Modern collection ages will it be transferred to Tate Britain to make room for new modern works? It will become quite confusing in years to come. And, even now there is a wing dedicated to the 20th century at Tate Britain. Here are a few highlights. To easily trim my pics I decided to focus on depictions of the human figure through the century. If you click on the first image in each set a slideshow will begin.
A quick tour through 20th century depictions of the human form…and a few other things.
And finally a special Barbara Hepworth exhibit is on at this time, but we didn’t pay to enter it. Here’s a sample of her exquisite work from the 20th century exhibit.
Tomorrow we are off to Paris and our friend JP.
