Tate Britain


When you are a teacher visiting a museum with a class of students, you truly appreciate it when the museum is open.
Admittedly, when we got to Tate Britain last Thursday, it was open, but undergoing such extensive renovation that a relatively small part of their artworks were exhibited to the public.
As a consequence, the students finished their worksheets in much less time than we had anticipated and also, I was hugely disappointed about missing out on their collection of William Blake paintings and engravings (not currently displayed).

Nevertheless, the renovated rooms containing an impressive collection of William Turners were rather breathtaking, and so that compensated at least to some extent.
