Tate buys hellish Blakes

Talking of Tate Britain, the gallery has just announced that it has been able to buy eight beautiful (if disturbing) William Blake works on paper, depicting figures writhing in hellfire. The ­necessary £441,000 has been raised with the help of a £141,000 grant from the Art Fund, now run by Stephen Deuchar. Deuchar stepped down as director of Tate Britain in December, with Nicholas Serota, overall director of Tate, quipping that they expected to be the happy ­recipients of the charity's largesse. And so, reader, it has come to pass – just a little bit quicker than expected. © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds
