Did you know a staggering 80 percent of Tate's collection can be seen here? This tour provides a taster of Tate's vast collection of works on paper. It offers a chance to see Turner's earliest sketchbooks to his famous Venetian views, as well as his legendary Blue Rigi, acquired by Tate last year. In addition, you can see watercolours and drawings by William Blake, Stanley Spencer and Francis Bacon, among others, and some of the finest examples of modern and contemporary printmaking from David Hockney, to Richard Hamilton and Paula Rego."
