Tate curator David Blayney Brown explains how artists have represented and responded to the dramas and tragedies of the British empire.

Blayney Brown is curator of British art 1790-1950 at the Tate, which is hosting a major new exhibition Artist and Empire. The exhibition and accompanying book look at how the story of life under British rule is told through various objects of art. These include paintings by well-known artists such as John Singer Sargent and Sidney Nolan, Benin bronze heads and Mughal miniatures. The various works range from a projection of British might to a representation or post-war imperial decline.

Artist and Empire runs at Tate Britain until April 10.

In association with the Ashmolean Museum.
