London’s biggest retrospective of the works of Walter Sickert in nearly 30 years opens at the Tate Britain and offers a dark journey into the mind of an influential, but an undeniably troubled artist.
About the Tate BritainMajor art gallery on the banks of the Thames.
It houses a substantial collection of the art of the UK since Tudor times, and in particular has large holdings of the works of J. M. W. Turner, who bequeathed all his own collection to the nation.
It is one of the largest museums in the country.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
