Chapman family collection


The re-hanging of Tate Britain has been a much talked about topic in the art world, and although i enjoyed the visual feast it created and the ability to stand in 2000 yet view 1920 through the long corridors that have now been utilized so well, i did still find problems with its new curation. Even after an attempt at creating a broader spectrum of British art history via a linear narrative, representing bodies and groups of artists who were working around same time periods but in vastly different ways the  Tate has still managed to set aside two rooms solely for Henry Moore, something i felt completely undermined all the other rooms.
