William Blake: Angels and Imagination

Issue No. 2124

William Blake claimed to experience visions throughout his life and he used these to explore ideas of religion, spirituality and philosophy in his art.

Famously, he often had visions of angels – even claiming to converse with them.

This exhibition takes the figure of the angel as a starting point for an exploration of Blake’s ideas about the body and spirit.
