Specialty: Fine Art
The original Tate Gallery, at Millbank in London, opened in 1897. Its official name was the National Gallery of British Art, but it became popularly known as the Tate Gallery, after its founder Sir Henry Tate. It was built on the site of Millbank Penitentiary, demolished in 1892, and was designed to house the collection of nineteenth-century British painting and sculpture given to the nation by Sir Henry Tate, together with some British paintings transferred from the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. At that time its responsibilities were specifically for modern British art, defined then as artists born after 1790. In 1917 the gallery was also made responsible for the national collection of international modern art and for British art going back to about 1500.
