9 August 2010 - 31 December 2012. The Tate Britain has designated its nine-room Clore Gallery to a major exhibition of British Romantic art, a movement characterised by belief in creative freedom, rather than tradition or style.
Drawn from the Tate's collection, it examines Romanticism's origins and innovations, from Turner's reinvention of landscape to Blake's highly imaginative visions. Artists included are John Constable, Samuel Palmer and Henry Fuseli, as well as Blake and Turner.
The legacy passed on by Romanticism receives appraisal and evaluation in an adjoining mini-exhibition which includes work by twentieth century artists such as Graham Sutherland.
