Since the 11th of September, London’s Tate Britain has hosted a major exhibition dedicated to William Blake, the English poet, painter and engraver.
The aim is to bring back to life the exhibition that the artist organized in 1809. Indeed, the curators have even recreated the small room where Blake exhibited his works.
The retrospective includes over 300 original pieces, including watercolors, paintings and prints and is considered the largest exhibition of Blake’s work in the last 20 years. Some pieces have been digitally enlarged and projected onto the wall of a museum gallery in the manner the artist intended to paint them.
Many believe that Blake is above all a poet, but the curators want to emphasize how his visual imagination was fundamental to his work.
