COMMENT - Tate Britain, London

Tate Britain at Millbank in London – extensively refurbished, more places to eat!  Very well done EXCEPT for the lights on the stairs and lobbies, the most mundane milk glass balls, surely the budget could have run to have hanging lights designed?  There are enough talented designers in this country. Admittedly on a very grey day, the lighting in the galleries was poor. The pictures, whether of the 1940’s or the 1600’s look FLAT, rather depressing - not so the Turners or a glowing Howard Hodgkins. 

Another exception - Henry Moore’s monumental sculptures, a room dedicated to him has pale lavender/blue walls – they look great.
