Special display marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Blake.

William Blake
Nebuchadnezzar (1795–c.1805)

This special display marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Blake.

Tate created the first ever Blake Gallery in the 1920s and since then Tate has played a very important part in presenting Blake to an international audience. This display includes Blake works from the excellent permanent collection but a highlight is the private loans of recently discovered works which have never before been exhibited.

As part of Tate's contribution to this anniversary celebration we have published a facsimile of William Blake's first printed book of poems, the 'Poetical Sketches' of 1783, from a copy which includes the author's handwritten corrections.
