William Blake at the Tate

The Ancient of Days

From 11 September 2019 – 2 February 2020 the Tate Britain gallery in London, is showing over 300 works by William Blake; perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to appreciate his visionary genius on such a scale.

According to his biographer, Alexander Gilchrist, Blake's design The Ancient of Days was "a singular favourite". He made many versions of it, including one completed shortly before his death.
