Happy, happy Friday at last! Heading across the pond to London to visit Tate Britain, one of the museums that was posted on Esquisses.

There is also Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool, and Tate St. Ives, but I’m just going to focus on Tate Britain. Opened on July 21, 1897, the Tate was just  one museum, which in time grew to four major sites. Tate has a natural collection of British art from 1500 to the present, with international, modern, contemporary art, make that 70,000 artworks.
