Speaking about art gallereys of London we should first of all
mention The national gallery, The national portret galerey and
The tate gallery. I would like to tell you about National portret
gallery and about Tate gallery.
The national gallery houses one of the richest and most
extensive collections of painting in the world. It stands to the
north of the Trafalgar Square. the gallerey was desighned by
William Wilkins and build in 1834-37. The collection covers all
schools and periods of painting, but is a specially famous for
it's examples of Rembrant and Rubents. The british schools is
only moderately represented as the national collections are
sharedwith the Tate gallerey. The National gallerey was founded
in 1824 when the government bought the collection of John
Angerstein which included 38 paintings.
The Tate gallery houses the national collection of british
painting from the 16-th century to the present day. It is also
the national gallerey for modern art, including painting and
sculpture made in Britain, Europe, America and other countries.
It was opened in 1897 as the national gallerey of british art. It
owes it's establishment to Suie Henritate who built the gallerey
and gave his own collection of 65 painting.
