The AGM itself will last about half an hour – and be followed by a talk from writer and archaeologist, David Mullin about Blake and the Ancients. When we gather, we can all share a toast into the New Year, too. Non-members are also welcome to attend – we’ve got a great event lined up!
To celebrate the publication of Louisa Albani’s latest Blake pamphlet, on which he collaborated, David Mullin will explore the period towards the end of Blake’s life when he was working on his Job and Dante illustrations.
It is apposite that Blake was working on his Dante illustrations at the time, as he became a kind of guide to the younger artists, helping them develop their practise and providing them with different ways of seeing their world, passing on his visionary inspiration at the end of his life.
David Mullin is an archaeologist and writer who lives in West Yorkshire. He is in the process of finishing a book about Samuel Palmer.
