William Blake was a visionary poet, painter and printmaker and an inspiration to artists, musicians and performers worldwide.

William Blake: The Artist will be the most comprehensive survey of his work for fifteen years, and will feature around 300 of his works in a variety of different mediums including watercolour, paint and print.

As well as marvelling at his technical innovations, the exhibition will also explore his personal struggles throughout a period of political oppression and tell the story behind many of his most famous images, in an atmospheric space that has been specially designed to showcase his works as he wished them to be seen.
