William BlakeThis autumn, Tate Britain showcases William Blake's work as he intended it to be shown in what will be the largest survey of the artist's work in the UK for a generation. Widely considered to be one of Britain's greatest artists, Blake had bold ambitions as a visual artist and envisioned vast frescos that were unfortunately never realised. Through digital enlargement, this exhibition will project The Spiritual Form of Nelson Guiding Leviathan c.1805-9 and The Spiritual Form of Pitt Guiding Behemoth c.1805 onto one of the gallery walls, presenting them in the huge scale that Blake had once imagined for the very first time. The original works will be shown nearby in a re-staging of Blake's 1809 exhibition - his only significant attempt at gaining public recognition. The exhibition will also act as a visual biography of Blake's life with a strong focus on London and the previously unrecognised creative assistance of his wife, Catherine.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
