William Blake at Tate Britain Val Woodgate Tuesday 08 October 2019

Tate Britain have brought together over  300 original works by William Blake, including his watercolours, paintings and prints, this is the largest show of Blake’s work for almost 20 years. It will rediscover him as a visual artist for the 21st century.

Radical and rebellious, he is an inspiration to visual artists, musicians, poets and performers worldwide. His personal struggles in a period of political terror and oppression, his technical innovation, his vision and political commitment, have perhaps never been more pertinent.

Inside the exhibition will be an immersive recreation of the small domestic room in which Blake showed his art in 1809. You will be able to experience for yourself the impact these works had when they were shown for the first time. In another room, Blake’s dream of showing his works at enormous scale will be made reality using digital technology.

Independent travel to Tate Britain. Our day will consist of Coffee on arrival, Lecture about the artist and the exhibition, Buffet Lunch, and timed entrance to the exhibition.
