This book is published to accompany the opening of the major new extension to the museum in the summer of 2016. The vastly increased gallery space will allow a much enhanced display of works from Tate’s collection of international modern and contemporary art, offering a more global outlook and greater diversity, and reflecting the significance of the constantly shifting hubs of influence and activity in the art world that have occurred since the beginning of the twentieth century.

In 2000, the first edition of the Tate Modern Handbook introduced readers to the startling architecture of the brand-new modern art museum on Londons south bank, now the most visited modern art museum in the world. This new revised edition, published in response to the first reorganization of the collection, presents the artworks afresh and examines the part Tate Modern now plays in global cultural life. Andrew Marr contributes an essay examining the Tate Modern phenomenon, while an expanded A-Z of works in the collection includes entries on more than 120 artists, plus explanations of key terms in art and museology. More than simply a guide to Tate Modern, this is an ideal introductory survey of 20th- and 21st-century art.

This book is an awesome overview of the museum. I bought it as a gift for a friend I visited The Tate with last summer. It's big and the images and history are lovely. I bought the item used from an amazon reseller and it was in perfect condition and cheap, though not as cheap as the free entrance to The Tate.

Buy this as a keepsake from an amazon reseller and you'll be happy you did. A great gift to a friend or yourself!

A splendid book presenting an impressive collection of art and sculpture. A comprehensive collection of masterpieces from the various periods of art.

An unsurpassed British collection: The sensitivity of British portraiture. The modest development of their landscape painting style. British marine painters.

And a modern collection holding significant works by all the masters: Bacon, Freud, Hepworth, Moore, Bonnard, Spencer, Smith, Epstein: The true British Masters.

And of course their world class collection of the Lords of art: Matisse, Picasso, Pollock, Klee, Rothko, Ernst etc. Indeed the generosity of past benefactors and the use of their donations toward these acquisitions launched the Tate into an eminent position.

MOMA - Louvre - Tate. The shrines of human artistic accomplishment. The Tate is wonderfully showcased both in the reproductions and text.

What an awful museum! Lots of great art, but a Greyhound station would house it better. The only good part is that you can get off at Blackfriars and go to that very old restaurant called Blackfriars and have terrific meat pie.
