During my recent trip to Europe, I found my own four Muses: The National Gallery, The Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate Modern and Musée du Louvre. This is a series of four blogs that will share my favorite works and possibly a few snapshots.
Part 3 of 4: Tate Modern
The Tate Modern, located in the former Bankside Power Station on the South Bank of the Thames River, is the youngest member of the Tate family. It houses modern and contemporary art from all around the globe. During my visit, The Tate Modern Project, an iconic new building to the south of the existing gallery, was underway and I can not wait to see it completed!
This is an architectural concept view from the south of the new building.
