Tate Britain Exhibition

William Blake

Main View

This exhibition takes a fresh view of the unique and innovative British artist and poet, William Blake (1757–1827). Although largely overlooked in his time, Blake's impact and influence on later generations of artists, writers and musicians has been enormous and he remains a major reference point in British culture today.

There are full details of the exhibition here on the web, including all the exhibition themes, a Blake Fact File with an A-Z of characters and a chronology of his life. There is also a specially commissioned Blake Interactive education project, where you can explore the artist's work in even more depth, listen to some of his poems, explore Blake's London, and download a teachers' pack. All these links are in the menu at the top of the page.
