The most significant patron of British art was a successful sugar trader: Sir Henry Tate. Born in Lancashire in 1819, the industrialist used his negotiating skills and innovative spirit to build a sugar empire out of a small company.
¨ The Patron of Art Edition “Sir Henry Tate” is characterised by clear tectonic shapes. The inspirational source is the neoclassical architecture of Tate Britain, the museum financed by Sir Henry Tate. The geometrical lines of the body and the decoration of the cap rings reflect characteristic elements in the style of the museum building. In elegant contrast, the cap and body feature red lacquer guilloche inlays and the cap head bears a Mother-of-Pearl Montblanc star. The cap head is surrounded by a series of square-cut diamonds. The retractable 18 Karat solid gold nib is adorned with the engraving of a sugar cane plant – the raw material which formed the springboard for the success of Sir Henry Tate as one of the greatest industrialists and art patrons of his time.
INSPIRED BY THE ARCHITECTURE OF TATE BRITAIN, THE MUSEUM THAT WAS FINANCED BY SIR HENRY TATE.
