EXHIBITIONS : HUNTINGTON LIBRARY
The Prints of the Blake Followers will be on exhibition at the Henry E. Huntington Art Gallery from 3 November 1981 to 27 February 1982. This group of artists, who included Edward Calvert, Samuel Palmer, George Richmond, Welby Sherman and John Linnell, were deeply influenced by Blake’s personality and art for a brief period, primarily in the late 1820s and early 1830s. The fifty prints by Blake and his followers in this exhibition are drawn from the Huntington collection and the Robert N. Essick collection. The show is accompanied by a catalogue. A scholarly symposium on the followers of Blake will be held in conjunction with the exhibition.
