About William Blake

Painter, printer, and poet, William Blake (1757-1827) was a master at expressing great literature through his art. Perhaps the finest engraver in English history, Blake's illuminated books - filled with sketches and watercolors that boggle the mind with their beauty and detail - are as sought after today as they were over a hundred years ago.
