The Tate galleries house the national collection of British art from
the sixteenth century to the present day.
Tate Britain, founded in 1897, is located at Millbank, London. Tate
Modern, located at former Bankside Power Station, was opened on 12 May
2000. (For critical refelections on the Millenial Opening and
"State Modernism" read the article
by Robert Dixon)
At Tate Modern you will find the Tate collection of international
modern art from 1900 to the present day. Two Rodin works are on display
here: The Fallen Caryatid Carrying her Stone and The Kiss in a full-size
pentelican marble version, which was originally acquired by an American,
Warren lived in the town
of Lewes, East Sussex, and had the sculpture installed in the
hallway of Lewes House. When he later loaned it to the town it caused
such a scandal that it was hidden from public view in a stable for
nearly 20 years; since then, the Tate has owned it for 45 years. Prior
to the opening of Tate Modern, The Kiss was welcomed back in Lewes for a
millennium exhibition from June 1998 to January 2000 in the Lewes Town
Hall, visited by over 1,000 people per day.

Rodin work in permanent collection:
William Ernest Henley, 1884-86, bronze head, H. 15,5"
(Not on display). I could not check yet if this is the cast
that was installed by Rodin in the crypt in St. Paul´s
Cathedral in 1907.
Victoria Tower Gardens, London
The Victoria Tower Gardens are located on the Parliament grounds.
The London copy of the Burghers (No. 4) was cast in 1908 for the Belgian entepreneur Wouters-Dustin, sold after Wouters´death to Joseph Mommen who offered it to Rodin again. In the years 1910-11 the cast was installed in Bruxelles, before it was purchased by the National Art Collections Fund in London. At the installation in 1915, Rodin was able to realize his proposal of a ca. 5 m high pedestal, near to the Victoria Tower, against the will of the Comittee. In 1956 finally, the Monument was moved to the middle of the Gardens and placed much lower on a fragment of the original pedestal.
As Susan Beattie and Thomas Appel point out, whatever pedestal is choosen, the Burghers will always cause controversy, because the Monument´s emotional content shocks the harmony of public space.
