Which Tate to see French Impressionism?

Hello,

I've tried searching through the various threads and the Tate website but I'm still no clearer! Could anyone please tell me if either of the Tate galleries house have any works by the French impressionists? The Tate website allows you to search 'the collection' but it doesn't seem to say which gallery the works are in.

Thanks.

The Tate is largely devoted to British art - you're better off with the National Gallery for that I think

Courtauld definitely.

Unfortunately it isn't free, apart from Monday mornings , but does have some excellent examples. Nice cafe in the basement too.

Tate Britain has the national collection of British art and the collection at Tate Modern is of modern and contemporary art.

I agree, to see French impressionist paintings you'd be better off going to the Courtauld or the National Gallery.

I agree on the Courtauld, free Mondays from 10:00 to 14:00.

"Please note: We regret that owing to refurbishment, the Gallery lift to all floors is out of service between 17 Oct 2011 - 13 Jan 2012."

"The Courtauld is good". I disagree, because the Courtauld is terrific! :-)

All lovers of French art should also visit the Wallace Collection, although their art is from a century or so earlier (free admission). Also look out for the Rembrandts.

The National Gallery has a superb collection - room 43 I think.

The Courtauld Gallery should definitely be your first port of call. And the National Gallery. Rooms 43-46 feature Impressionism and Post-Impressionism.

When are you coming? The Royal Academy currently has a 'Degas and the Ballet' until 11 Dec. Note that there is timed ticket entry - best to book in advance to avoid having to queue for tickets.
