    Tate Britain has recently undergone substantial renovation, including the provision of a set of new rooms for “BP Displays,” a series sponsored by one of the Tate’s major funders, British Petroleum. They house “Focus” events – mini exhibitions that change every six to nine months, with the aim of showcasing an artist or particular work, exploring new research or under-represented materials, and displaying rarely seen material from the Tate archive. The rooms are visually striking, their walls painted in intense, deep colours. In 2012, one of them gave space to twenty paintings and two sculptures on the theme of Victorian Sentimentality. Its rich raspberry walls made both paintings and the pristinely white statues look glorious.
