William Blake: The Artist

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was an English poet, painter and printmaker. Largely unrecognized during his lifetime, Blake is regarded today as a major, if iconoclastic figure, and a religious visionary whose art and poetry prefigured, and came to influence, the Romantic movement. Many people know him as the author of the words of the hymn ‘Jerusalem’, that unofficial English national anthem.

This new exhibition showcases paintings, prints and watercolours from the Tate’s unrivalled collection to provide an overview of Blake’s unique and original art. We will meet up at St Matthew’s Westminster where a member of the Blake Society will give an introductory talk then move across to the Tate Britain where we will lunch and visit the collection.
