The works by Blake in the Tate Gallery constitue one of its special collections.

The collection's beginnings were modest. Two water-colours were transferred from the National Gallery in 1909 ; it was in October-December 1913 that the Tate paid his first tribute to the memory of Blake by holding an important exhibition of his work. This was the first Blake Exhibition to be held in a public gallery in Great Britain.

Between 1919, when the share of the works from the John Linnell collection actually became the property of the Gallery, and 1922 two works were purchased.

Two great additions to the Tate's collection of Blakes came from the Graham Robertston gift and from the collection of Thomas Butts, Blake's friend and patron.
