William Blake: The Artist, Tate Britain
Wednesday 29 January 2020

This exhibition was rated 1 out of the 5 things to do this Autumn in the Arts Society Magazine.  

William Blake was an unlikely kind of genius; the son of a Soho hosier, born in 1757, he had visions of angels in Peckham, lived in poverty for much of his life and fell out with almost everyone who tried to help him. His written works include Jerusalem and The Tyger but, as this exhibition over six rooms proves, he was a visual artist of hallucinatory power whose work could look like the apocalypse as scripted by Mary Shelley.
