British poet, printmaker and artist William Blake died #onthisday in 1827. Blake developed his own style of illustrated poems – he worked at the same time as Romantic poets and painters, but his style remained distinct. Here are three examples of his powerful work completed in pen, ink and watercolour.
There's still something I find deeply unsettling about Blake's imagery. There's probably enough material there for a whole symposium of psychoanalysts :-))
A mystic certainly, and a critical mind too. Psychoanalysis might help, but also some insights in symbolism...Also, remember that Blake was a visionary who saw angels walking the fields on his way home...
I love William Blake. Such a spirit. Such a visionary. Still standing alone.
