I love Mondrian's work, so went to Tate Liverpool especially to see the exhibition. As well as a good range of Mondrian's abstract paintings, there was a fascinating reconstruction of his studio, which showed his paintings as an integral part of his studio. Another interesting aspect was the display of his letters to Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson. An unexpected... More

Some excellent displays of modern art, well laid out and accessible over 3 floors. They had a Jackson Pollock, which I particularly liked.

We enjoyed our visit to the Tate Gallery. Particularly loved the paínting of The Peasant by Modigliani . Could look at that all day. It is an eclectic exhibition and a bit thin on the ground. I couldn't see a link between things but enjoyed everything individually. We did not have the time to visit the Mondrian exhibition. Good disabled... More

Having visited many art museums I always leave knowing that I haven't seen everything, however with the size of Tate Liverpool I was able to take in everything.

Courtesy of my membership,it was my third visit to the Mondrian and Nasreen Mohamedi Exhibition and thanks to two very helpful Tate assistants I really at last got the hang of these two artists! The lovely girl from Canada let me into the secrets of looking at Nasreen's work and I felt quite excited by gaining a greater understanding and... More

Me and my mum visited the Tate on July 15 2014 and we were made to think that you pay to see all exhibitions when in fact you only pay to see one exhibition. We payed £17.50 to go to the 4th floor and look at an exhibition which we didn't bother going to see as we were bored out... More

I went here a couple of years ago and loved it. I didn't enjoy my latest visit as much which was to see Mondrian and his studios. Mondrian's art is called neo-plasticism, and consists of blocks of colour, usually red, yellow and blue in a black framework. That's it really, they are all much of a muchness to me, and... More

This Tate is unlike the others, being part of a lively docklands complex. The Mondrian exhibition was well curated, giving thought to making space for the windows which overlook the dock from which Mondrian left for America, the black rhythms of the square frames echoing the black lines separating colour in the paintings exhibited on the walls. The studio mock... More

We have just visited Tate Liverpool to see the Mondrian exhibition. The works are exhibited beautifully and there is lots of space to get up close or just stand in the middle of a room and absorb the beauty. The studio reconstruction is inspired. What a creative and clever idea to do do this. The Tate in Liverpool is easy... More

Superb Mondrian exhibition at Tate Liverpool - who needs London?Staff were friendly and very helpful as usual and the exhibition was laid out in a logical way which I think helps everyone - knowledgable or just vaguely interested.Thanks must go to the curators.Took advantage of the audio guide which also helped and is definitely a good way to gain further...
