Great Britain in London: Rehung Romantics at Tate Britain

Last week, Tate Britain re-opened its Clore Galleries following a major re-hang of its Romantics collection.

We couldn’t think of a better showcase for Great Britain in our World In London series than this stunning collection, featuring more than 170 paintings exploring British romantic art.

JMW Turner, John Constable, William Blake and Samuel Palmer are among the greats whose work is on display and entry is completely free.

You can even see a few romantic representations of London as I spotted a painting of Greenwich Park by Turner and of Hampstead Heath by Constable.

Romantics at Tate Britain until 31 December 2012
