The painter, printmaker, poet and mystical philosopher William Blake (1757–1827) is one of the great geniuses of art history. For Blake, creative inspiration and religious belief were inseparable and in his most dazzling works he expresses almost limitless imaginative ambition.

This display is an intimate look at over 50 works from the Tate collection and includes a series of watercolour illustrations to Dante’s The Divine Comedy.
