Tate Britain there is a small place in our heart for its older sister, Tate Britain. The gallery is home to Late At Tate Britain, a late-night series that allows you to drink as you peruse the artwork, but its permanent displays are well worth a visit, too. Before you head into the venue's airy exhibition spaces. So beautiful. Tate Britain, Millbank, London, SW1P 4RG; +44 (0) 207 887 8888.
Proserpine (1874). Dante Gabriel Rossetti (English, Pre-Raphaelite, 1828‑1882). Oil paint on canvas. Tate. Proserpine, Empress of Hades, was allowed to return to earth, provided only she had not partaken of any of the fruits of Hades. But she had eaten one grain of a pomegranate, and this enchained her to her new empire and destiny. She is represented in a gloomy corridor of her palace, with the fatal fruit in her hand.
