These are enormous collections gleaned from private loans and donations. Tate Modern, opened in 2000 in a disused Thames-side power station, and is now the world's largest gallery of contemporary art and one of London's most popular modern attractions. Monet, Ofili, Duchamp, Picasso, Bacon. Come and do some 'isms'. Tate Britain, on the other hand, holds British art from the 1500s to 1900. Just think Millais floating Ophelia, or The Lady of Shalott, or Singer Sergeant's Carnation Lily Lily Rose. If you had parents who were hippies, believe me, you know and love this stuff.
