William Blake: Wonderful And Strange

Jenny Uglow writes: The Ashmolean Museum, in Oxford, is an ‘absolutely fitting place for “William Blake: Apprentice and Master,” an exhibition that is at once didactic and very strange. Entering the exhibition…is like opening another secret cabinet, whose curiosities defy time. This show, however, which has irritated visitors as much as entranced them, is determined to place the “timeless” genius back in his day, explaining how the development of his idiosyncratic techniques challenged contemporary art education and practices.’ Pictured is Blake’s “Nebuchadnezzar,” from 1795.
