In 1889 Industrialist Henry Tate offered his collection of British art to the nation. Since there was no enough space in the National Gallery, a new gallery was created for only British Art. A former prison at Millbank Penitentiary was chosen for the new Gallery in 1892. The gallery opened its doors to the public in 1897. This gallery renamed as Tate Gallery in 1932. Besides Henry’s gift, there are other works of British artists. The gallery at Millbank works as the national gallery of British arts. It became wholly independent from the National Gallery in 1955.
