Description

In a career that spanned a turbulent era in European history, William Blake (1757-1827) produced one of the most celebrated and intense bodies of works in the history of art. Neglected and misunderstood in his lifetime, his extraordinary paintings, poetry, and prints now enjoy an international reputation. His visual interpretations of the Bible and the poetry of Milton and Dante demonstrate a fervid invention and a searching intellect that have entranced generations of admirers.

Technically innovative, strikingly original, and highly personal in their symbolism, his images are both powerfully immediate in their effects and challenging in their complexity.

This offers an excellent overview of the artist and his career, with many of his important works reproduced. He was an artist far ahead of his time–even though he lived and worked 200 years ago, today he is one of the best known artists ever. His works are as fantastic and fantasy-like as that of artists 100 years later, such as Sidney Sime and the Symbolists of the late 19th century.

Great bargain-priced introduction, or further exploration, of this extremely important artist.
