Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Tate Britain review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

It's been fifty years since male homosexuality was decriminalised in England, and Tate Britain will be marking the anniversary with a show focusing exclusively on 'Queer British Art'.

By using deeply personal and intimate works from the Pre-Raphaelites onwards, the show will explore how artists managed to express themselves during a time when their gender and sexuality had to conform to rigid norms.

On show will be paintings, drawings and personal photographs by the likes of John Singer Sargent, Dora Carrington and David Hockney.
