    Inside the studio of William Blake 

    BBC Arts looks at a major exhibition on the life and work of William Blake. In this film BBC Arts tours Blake’s recreated studio, made from recently discovered plans, for the exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

    Blake saw medieval illustrated manuscripts during his apprenticeship at Westminster Abbey, and through his ‘illuminated printing’ process aspired to create comparable works.

    Blake’s uncompromising, innovative approach to bringing image and text together are revealed, as well as manuscripts and magnificent printed books gathered from museums around the world – many of which will be rested for ten years or more following this exhibition.

    The Diatomist 

    Matthew Killip’s “The Diatomist” is a short documentary about Klaus Kemp, master of the Victorian art of diatom arrangement.

    Diatoms are single cell algae that create jewel-like glass shells around themselves. Microscopists of the Victorian era would arrange them into complex patterns, invisible to the naked eye but spectacular when viewed under magnification.The best of these arrangements are stunning technical feats that reveal the hidden grandeur of some of the smallest organisms on Earth. Klaus Kemp has devoted his entire life to understanding and perfecting diatom arrangement and he is now acknowledged as the last great practitioner of this beautiful combination of art and science. The Diatomist showcases his incredible work. (Soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bernard Herrmann and Cults Percussion Ensemble).

    Matthew Killip is an English filmmaker living in New York. His documentaries have been broadcast on UK television and exhibited in festivals including Sundance and True/False.

    Dirty Dali 

    —Via ArtHistoryLuv/You Tube:

    In this intimate film art critic Brian Sewell gives his sympathetic private view of a man whose life and work were surrendered to sexual obsessions.

    Salvador Dali is one of the most popular of all Surrealist painters, yet behind his image of dream and fantasy was a deeply troubled man of ambiguous sexuality and Freudian confusion. In this intimate film art critic Brian Sewell – who knew Dali at the point when his genius and reputation were both exhausted – gives his sympathetic private view of a man whose life and work were surrendered to sexual obsessions.

    Between 1968 and 1971, Sewell spent four intensely memorable summers with Dali in the artist’s Spanish home town. When he knew Dali, the artist was living entirely freed from the constraints of morality, respectability and logic. At first hand, Sewell witnessed the day-to-day routine and recalls the details that vividly and dramatically illustrate both Dali’s extravagant, flamboyant genius and the personal demons – sexual and psychological – that drove him and his work.
