What was the impact that Blake’s works, ante litteram visual artist, had on the public of the 1800s? Responding to this question is the most complete exhibition dedicated to the artist from London in the last twenty years. The radical rebellious painter, source of inspiration for poets, musicians and artists all over the world, with his personal struggles, innovative technique and political commitment, is at the centre of an interesting itinerary at the Tate Britain. With an immersive itinerary, the exhibition reproduces the tiny room in which Blake, in 1809, showed his art to the world. In another hall, the artist’s works will be recreated on a vast scale using digital technology. Over 300 original works - water colours, paintings, prints - will offer the public an in-depth look at the visionary art of the painter, engraver and poet, creator of some of British art’s most iconic images.
