Date Posted: 25/04/2013

School groups visiting one or more of the Tate galleries in 2014 can expect to see works by high calibre artists such as Matisse and Turner.

The group of galleries’ forthcoming 2014 programme will include major exhibitions of the work of Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, JMW Turner, Richard Hamilton and Kazimir Malevich.

From 17th April to 7th September Tate Modern’s exhibition Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs will bring together around 120 works including the Tate’s The Snail 1953; its companion piece Memory of Oceania 1953 and Matisse’s largest cut-out, the 33 foot-long Large Composition with Masks 1953.

Tate Britain sees the first major exhibition to survey the late works of JMW Turner (1775-1851). Late Turner: Painting Set Free, running from 10th September 2014 to 18th January 2015, will reassess the artist’s extraordinary output from 1835, when many of his most celebrated paintings were created including Rain, Steam, and Speed - The Great Western Railway 1844 (National Gallery).

At Tate Liverpool, Mondrian and his Studios, running from 6th June to 21st September will feature key abstract works by Piet Mondrian (1872-1944), one of the most important contributors to the development of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th century.

The exhibition will include a life-size reconstruction of Mondrian’s Paris studio that will be accessible to those on a school trip.

Teachers taking school groups to Tate St Ives, can visit summer exhibition, Relocating St Ives, which will explore the wider national and international contexts which shaped art in St Ives from the 1940s to 60s with works by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Peter Lanyon, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Bernard Leach and, for international comparison, Constantin Brancusi.
