Tate Britain Is Now “Chronologically Hung”

According to The Independent: ‘Over the past few months, Tate Britain has been undergoing slow but highly significant changes. Two long corridors of rooms – to the left and right of the Duveen Galleries – have been entirely refurbished and re-hung. The story of the development of British art from 1540 onwards is told in its entirety, chronologically hung.’ I’m sorry, but I couldn’t finish this story and comment on it for your faithful LW readers because I had a fit of schoolboy sniggers and couldn’t get past the phrase “chronologically hung.” Does that mean the packing painters go first, with the more normal artists after?
