Painter of the Week: William Blake. The Body of Abel Found by Adam and Eve, c. 1825. Watercolour on wood.
William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. His prophetic poetry has been said to form “what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language” (From Wikipedia)
