Published to coincide with the much awaited chronological rehang of Tate Britain. With entries of over 170 artworks representing the unrivalled collection at Tate Britain, this handbook provides a lively and informative introduction to the story of art in Britain over the last five hundred years. Presented chronologically, the works provide a fascinating insight into British history as well as the evolution of British art. Each artwork has a descriptive entry of five hundred words.
