By Dalya Alberge, Arts Correspondent

The Tate was accused yesterday of snubbing one of Britain’s foremost collections after it rejected a gift of 160 paintings that had been given pride of place at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.

Its director, Sir Nicholas Serota, said that the works did not deserve to be in a national collection, even though their five-month exhibition last autumn drew thousands of people to the Walker, one of the outstanding collections of fine art in Europe and part of National Museums Liverpool.

To find out what the Tate does think worth acquiring click here for its list of new work in the collection. The first artwork, by Jennifer Allora, consists of: metal coathangers, ham radio transmitter, aerial.

And this is how the Tate represents painting.

"If you didn't think the Tate was woefully out of touch the news this week that it rejected a gift of 160 paintings by the Stuckists..... makes it painfully clear." -Nate Lippens, Seattle blogsite

"...all that representational crap is just too boring and unoriginal to be worth collecting, even when given away for free, but canned feces? Pure genius, clearly worth 40 times its weight in gold!"
