Synopsis

Henry Tate by Bruce Ingman

Inspired by the life of the founder of the now famous Tate art galleries, Henry Tate is a sweet tale about one man's passion for making art available to as many people as possible. We follow the story of Henry Tate on his journey from green grocer to philanthropist who, before the turn of the twentieth century, made the pioneering move to share his entire collection of paintings with the British public. Incorporating illustrations of artworks from Tate's ever-evolving collection, award-winning illustrator and author Bruce Ingman brings to life one of Britain's lesser-known historical figures. The book is a delightful celebration of a legacy far greater than Henry Tate himself ever could have imagined.
