Tate is the United Kingdom state museum of British and modern art, and is a network of four art galleries in [England]]: Tate Britain (opened 1897), Tate Liverpool (1988), Tate St Ives (1993) and Tate Modern (2000), with a complementary website, Tate Online (1998). It was founded with the official title the National Gallery of British Art and was renamed after Henry Tate funded a building for it at Millbank in London. This was its sole venue until the end of the 20th century.
