Full description
Experience the best artwork of the 19th and 20th centuries as you walk with your guide through the Tate Modern’s many galleries. Discuss Mondrian’s groundbreaking lines and squares that baffled other artists with their simplicity and exactitude. Revisit old favorites like the Spanish-born Picasso and Dali, who created several masterpieces during the Spanish Civil War.

Be introduced to the Impressionists through Claude Monet and fast-forward to the abstract-expressionists like Mark Rothko. Spot celebrities like Marilyn Monroe while learning about Andy Warhol’s innovative pop art. Scratch your head while standing around Duchamp’s Fountain and debate the merits of art. Be prepared to question everything you thought you knew about art while discovering the marvels of the Tate Modern.
