my personal tate britain collection

by Stormfish July. 16, 2016 1033 views


all the pictures above are from the tate britain in london, which i visited just recently. 

they are details from much bigger panels and i wonder if anyone here would recognize any of the painters who done them? ;-)

BTW it is rather annoying that there are no numbers on the photos we post if more than one,don't you think so too?

yeah well. there seems to be a shitload of annoyance everywhere about the new PB. frankly, I don't care much. I think there is more important stuff in the world to be annoyed or worried about, and thus... i'll just keep posting and commenting here as happy as I ever was before (and you know how "happy" that is ;-)

I have a terrible memory for names but I thought none of them were painted by Monet so pleased I got at least that correct.
Hope you tell us who the painters are .
The 11th one intrigues me .

Thanks very much.
Too true about there are more important things to complain about, but little improvements saves time for us all.
Well just keep being your "happy" self .

if "saving time" is your priority, yes. I'm not entirely sure I'd subscribe to that. ;-)

Great idea! I love the panel with the chubby/grumpy "fiddle player" in # ?.

yep, me too. that one is called "Amateurs on Tye-Wig Music (musicians of the old school) by Edward francis burney, ca. 1820. :-)

Oh please - it's who did them - better still - who painted them! Sorry - but it's glaring.
I recognise nearly all of them - especially Monet. The older ones at the start, I am not so sure,
The flower girl goes to my favs.

good to know there are still people out there who care for these old pictures... but actually, there is not a single monet in this collection (and I doubt they have one ate the tate BRITAIN ;-)

Please - who painted #13, 14 and 15?
I would also like to know who painted the fiddler - I spent a good half hour on google without luck - so long since I visited the Tate.

13, 14 is by james tissot, "The Ball on Shipboard", ca. 1874
15 is by William Logsdail, "St Martin-in-the-Fields", 1888

btw... the tate has an excellent online catalogue where I get all this data from: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/logsdail-st-martin-in-the-fields-n01621
