William Blake was an English poet, Artist, and printmaker now known as a major figure of the Romantic age. During his life many of Blake's peers considered him mad, yet his creative often mythical Art was truly prophetic.

Rejecting most political and religious beliefs of his time Blake's artistic creations are uniquely expressive. Featuring spiritual and esoteric symbolism Blake created a rich world of watercolor, drawings and illustrations. We have chosen some of our favorite visual work by William Blake and accompanying art resources.
