Additional Details:
Presented and endowed by Sir Henry Tate to the nation, with the sincere endeavour of popularising and engendering a love in the people for the beautiful, and with the view of encouraging purely British art. The site on which the Gallery now stands was occupied by the Old Millbank Prison 1813, it ceased to be a civil prison 1870. The military authorities taking over its regulation for military prisoners, the increasing value of its position and other reasons, resulted in its demolition and part of the site is given over as a military hospital (Guards) and County Council dwellings
