A major figure of the Romantic Movement, the British artist William Blake (1757-1827) was at once a painter, designer, engraver and poet. Inspired by Biblical and prophetical themes (Proverbs of Hell, The Everlasting Gospel and The Gates of Paradise), the artist played with the diversity of his media in order to better externalise the demons that haunted him, as well as to plunge the viewer or reader into a profound melancholy. In this monograph, Osbert Burdett sheds light on the art and life of this extraordinary artist, gifted with unequalled imagination and originality.

    Comments about William Blake:

    A great insight into the life and work of this genius with finely reproduced examples of his illuminated books and other artwork. Approachable text is a friendly introduction to this many-faceted creative giant. A large book, this is indeed a splendid work to nourish art-loving Blake fans for years to come. One of the outstanding volumes in my library.
