The BP Walk through British Art offers a circuit of Tate Britains unparalleled collection from its beginnings to its end. This walk through time has been arranged to ensure that the collections full historical range, from 1545 to the present, is always on show. There are no designated themes or movements; instead, you can see a range of art made at any one moment in an open conversational manner.
As part of the BP Walk through British Art there are also two galleries on the main floor which are devoted to Henry Moore, one of Britains pre-eminent sculptors. The rooms explore Moores close personal relationship with Tate, investigate his working processes and highlight his public sculpture of the 1950s and 1960s.
The BP Walk through British Art also includes The Clore Gallery which is dedicated to the Turner Collection and houses the artists bequest to the nation. A room of works by Turners great rival and contemporary, John Constable, are also on display. The upper floor of the Clore gallery showcases a changing selection of representative works from Tates outstanding collection of paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints by the visionary artist William Blake.
