Tate Modern: The Handbook

Tate Modern: The Handbook

Published to accompany the opening of a major new expansion to Tate Modern in summer 2016, this handbook offers a fascinating look at the gallery's acclaimed and growing collection of international modern and contemporary art. An essay by Frances Morris summarises the history of the collection offering a unique insight into the considerations involved in building and shaping a national collection. Matthew Gale describes some of the changing themes in the gallery displays. The A-Z section of artists includes, not only many of the most popular works in the collection, such as Matisse's 'The snail' or DalĂ­'s 'Lobster telephone', but also features recent acquisitions from across the world. More than simply a guide to one of the most important museums in its field, the book is also an invaluable tool to the understanding of modern art and artists.
