BLAKE EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE AT THE HUNTINGTON
From November 1987 through February 1988, the Huntington Art Gallery will exhibit works by Blake and his circle selected from the collection of Robert N. Essick. In addition to drawings by Blake and pages from his illuminated books, the sixty-four items in the show will include works by Fuseli, Romney, Flaxman, Palmer, Linnell, and other artists among Blake’s contemporaries and followers. The Huntington will publish an illustrated catalogue of the exhibition authored by the collector. On 29-30 January 1988, the Huntington will host a conference on Blake, jointly sponsored by the Huntington, the Berkeley, Los Angeles, and Riverside campuses of the University of California, and the California Institute of Technology. The speakers will be Martin Butlin, Detlef Dörrbecker, Morris Eaves, Morton Paley, and Aileen Ward. The Huntington Library Quarterly plans to publish the conference papers in a special issue of the journal.
