Blake by the sea
PETWORTH (Great Britain) – Visionary painter and poet William Blake (1757-1827) spent his whole life in London, except for a three-year period, from 1800 to 1803, when he settled in Sussex, in a cottage on the coast, at Felpham. He described it as the most charming place in the world. Not far from there, Petworth House, the home of the National Trust, brings back to life that fruitful stay with all the works that can be associated to it, such as Satan calling up his legions.
• Blake in Sussex, at Petworth House, from 13 January to 25 March 2018.
