The Tate: A Centenary Historyby Frances Spalding
The Tate Gallery opened in 1897 and came into being as a result of growing recognition of an urgent need for a national gallery of British art. This, the first comprehensive account of the Tate, traces its growth over the last hundred years. Works of art, building schemes, government, public, and private sector funding are some of the many factors that shape the Tate's shifting nexus of relationships as it grows and expands. Despite many disasters, including two world wars, a flood, staff troubles, and missed opportunities, what emerges is a steadily evolving professional institution, whose story is ultimately one of triumph.
