William Blake - Tate Britain
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
A SPECIAL display marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Blake entitled William Blake: ‘I still go on/Till the Heavens and Earth are gone’, can be seen at Tate Britain until June 1, 2008.
The Tate created the first ever Blake Gallery in the 1920s and since then it has played a very important part in presenting the great visionary poet and painter to an international audience.
This display includes Blake works not only from the gallery’s permanent collection but also private loans of recently discovered works which have never before been exhibited.
The exhibition also explores Blake’s shifting reputation over the last two and a half centuries.
Times: Daily from 10am to 5.50pm.
