WILLIAM BLAKE 

Tate Britain, Millbank, Westminster, London SW1P 4RG

11th September - 2nd February 2020 

Painter, poet, printer and more…  William Blake’s work has the wow factor in every sense and this show promises to dazzle. 

From his poetry to his paintings, both were controversial in their day. An advocate of artistic freedom and champion of female emancipation, he’s quite the man for today!

He freely acknowledged his wife Catherine’s contribution to his creativity; they had a long and devoted marriage.  All this will be reflected in an epic Blake blockbuster of over 300 rarely seen works including his only self portrait never shown before in the UK.

Blake’s mythical paintings of ghostly apparitions are the stuff of nightmares and his poetry, famously the enduring lines to England’s patriotic hymn, ‘Jerusalem’, was deeply and profoundly philosophical.

He painted a fantasy world where spirits communicate and heaven meets hell.  A spiritual man, he was obsessed by the supernatural. It’s reputed that some of his more hallucinatory work was induced through seance which cannot have endeared him to the art world of his day. He was considered more than a little eccentric to the point of being off kilter! 

London was his city and though he lived humbly, there are now blue plaques galore from Lambeth to Soho.  Alongside the exhibition, there will be numerous Tate talks and events to celebrate the great man who sadly never achieved fame in his lifetime. 

The rich legacy of his visionary work influenced generations of artists and writers, from musicians like Bono and Dylan to writers like Philip Pullman, who claims Blake inspired him to write His Dark Materials.

Book now and be transported.
