Largest collection of William Blake's works on display for first time in 20 years

For the first time in almost 20 years, the largest collection of William Blake's original works have gone on display at the Tate Britian.

The show brings together more than 300 rarely seen pieces by the painter, printmaker and poet.

Inside the exhibition is an immersive recreation of the small room where William Blake showed his art in 1809, giving people the chance to experience the work in the way they were shown for the very first time.

William Blake's work is on at the Tate Britain until the 2nd of February next year.
