Save Event: William Blake

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Blake claimed to experience visions throughout his life and he perceived no division between these visions and reality. They were often spiritual and religious in their content, and were intimately linked to his artistic explorations of theology and philosophy. Drawing on works from three of Blake's great series of illustrations for private patrons; Dante's Divine Comedy, Edward Young's Night Thoughts, and the series of bible illustrations for Thomas Butts, this exhibition shows how Blake reinterpreted these texts in the light of his own beliefs.
