Art Funded works star in Tate Britain's latest exhibition

  • 9 February 2007

Ten paintings in Tate Britain's acclaimed Hogarth exhibition belong to UK museums because of The Art Fund's help.

Hogarth is the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work in recent times, presenting a full range of his work and highlighting his unique contribution to the development of modern British art.

As well as enjoying half-price entry into the exhibition, Art Fund members will be able to see for themselves no fewer than ten masterpieces that their money has helped to buy for public collections across the UK.

The ArtFunded works on display in the exhibition are:

The Graham Children, gifted to the National Gallery through The Art Fund in 1934

The Staymaker, purchased by Tate in 1942
