TATE BLAKE GALLERY

A new gallery specially designed for the Tate Gallery’s Blake collection is scheduled to open in Autumn 1978. As well as the majority of the Tate’s own Blake collection and a section devoted to such artists as Samuel Palmer and George Richmond, the display will include the two panels “Winter” and “Evening” lent by the Vaughan Johnson Trust, the watercolor sketch “Job and His Daughters” lent by Dr. R. E. Hemphill and a group of works from the Bateson Collection. The Bateson Collection, which was previously on long loan to the Honolulu Academy of Arts, includes the four works shown in the large Tate Gallery exhibition earlier in the year, “Pestilence,” the color print “Satan exulting over Eve,” the sketch for the alternative design for the title page to The Grave, and the late book illustration discussed elsewhere in this issue of Blake. In addition the collection contains three other works which have also been placed on long loan at the Tate Gallery, a tracing possibly by Blake himself from the drawing of “The Last Judgment” in the Rosenwald Collection, the drawing of “Adam and Eve sleeping” included by Geoffrey Keynes in his first book of Pencil Drawings by William Blake, 1927, as no. 35 but later recognized by him as a drawing by Edward Francis Burney, and a pen and wash drawing of “The Expulsion of Adam and Eve” which bears a false signature of Blake and the date “1803” but is certainly not by him. Not all of these works will be on view but those in store can be seen by appointment.
