Tate Modern

La Tate Modern est le musée qui, depuis son ouverture le 12 mai 2000, regroupe la collection nationale d'art moderne et d'art contemporain et international, provenant originellement de la Tate Gallery. Elle est située dans le centre de Londres, à Bankside, dans le district de Southwark, sur la rive droite de la Tamise. Construite dans une centrale électrique désaffectée dessinée par Giles Gilbert Scott, elle constitue l'un des hauts lieux du nouveau Londres. L'ancienne salle des machines a été reconvertie en un immense hall servant à des expositions exceptionnelles. Le cabinet d'architectes chargé de la reconversion est Herzog & de Meuron. La Tate Modern se situe à quelques pas du Millennium Bridge et est proche du Théâtre du Globe. L'accès peut se faire en train en descendant à London Blackfriars, en métro à l'arrêt Southwark ou en bus à descendant à l'arrêt Tate Modern de la ligne RV1. La collection est organisée autour d'une série de parcours thématiques, plutôt que de façon chronologique. La Tate Modern déploie sept niveaux dédiés à la création artistique des XXe et XXIe siècles, dont deux consacrés aux expositions permanentes.

National Gallery

La National Gallery (ou, en français, la Galerie nationale), fondée en 1824 et achevée en 1838, est un musée situé à Londres et occupant le nord de Trafalgar Square. Elle détient un patrimoine artistique datant de 1250 à 1900, les œuvres plus récentes étant abritées à la Tate Modern. La collection de 2 300 peintures, datant du Moyen Âge à la fin du XIXe siècle, appartient au domaine public britannique et l'accès à la collection principale est gratuit. Seules les expositions temporaires sont soumises à un prix d'entrée. La Gallery est un organisme public non-départemental. Les débuts de la National Gallery furent modestes, à la différence du Louvre à Paris ou du Prado à Madrid, car la collection ne fut pas fondée par la nationalisation d'œuvres d'art appartenant à la famille royale ou à des nobles. L'essor de la Gallery débuta avec l'achat de 38 peintures au banquier John Julius Angerstein en 1824. La Gallery fut ensuite conçue par ses premiers directeurs, en particulier Sir Charles Lock Eastlake, et ses collections ont été enrichies par des donataires privés pour les deux tiers des œuvres. La National Gallery conserve quelques-uns des plus beaux tableaux du monde, et si l'on peut y admirer quelques œuvres nationales (William Turner, John Constable, Thomas Gainsborough), l'essentiel est constitué de tableaux étrangers qui recouvrent toute l'histoire de l'art du Moyen Âge à la fin du XIXe siècle, avec des pièces maîtresses de : Fra Angelico ; Jacopo Bassano ; Giovanni Bellini ; Sandro Botticelli ; Paul Cézanne ; John Constable ; Gonzales Coques ; Piero di Cosimo ; Lucas Cranach l'Ancien ; Piero della Francesca ; Frans Hals ; Hans Holbein le Jeune : Les Ambassadeurs ; Dominique Ingres ; Gustav Klimt ; Lorenzo Lotto ; Édouard Manet ; Andrea Mantegna ; Hans Memling ; Michel Ange ; Claude Monet ; Le Pérugin ; Camille Pissarro ; Giambattista Pittoni ; Nicolas Poussin ; Raphaël ; Rembrandt ; Auguste Renoir ; Pierre-Paul Rubens ; Georges Seurat Giovanni Battista Tiepolo ; J.M.W. Turner ; Paolo Ucello ; Vincent van Gogh ; Jan van Eyck ; Rogier van der Weyden ; Antoine Van Dyck ; Diego Velázquez ; Johannes Vermeer ; Paul Véronèse ; Léonard de Vinci ; Canaletto ; Francisco de Zurbarán.
