Episode 008: What you'll find at the Tate Britain

In this week's podcast, we give you a taste of what you might see if you go to the Tate in London, England.

The building of the Tate Britain as well as the beginnings of the museum's collections were donated by Sir Henry Tate.

Ophelia by Millais

Lady of Shalott by Waterhouse
The above two images come from a group known as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. While short-lived, these images were looking to more medieval works as inspiration.

Annunciation by Rosetti

Daydream  by Rosetti

The Golden Bough by Turner

Haywain by Constable

Nebuchadnezzar by Blake
While most of these pieces come from more permanent exhibits, there are several exhibits that come and go at the Tate, including a 20th Century walk. To experience an online tour, check out the virtual tour with the Google Arts Project. If you happen to be in the area, make sure you don't miss out on the Tate!
