William Blake

   •   Victorian art   •   Wikipedia: William Blake
1737 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #700
Decried by his contemporaries as an eccentric spinner, the genius of William Blake, born in London in 1757, was recognized and appreciated only after his death. Already in childhood, haunted by visions of angels, demons and spirits, mysticism served the trained engraver throughout his life as inspiration for his artistic and poetic career. After quarreling with the president of the Royal Academy of Arts, he founded a print shop and, together with his wife Catherine, published his works, creating his own relief technique, relief etching. Typical for Blake was the novel combination of image and writing.

Also because of the visualization of his visions in his works, which were so different from contemporary art, Blake was considered by his fellow human beings as a crazy, but unusually happy person, who advocated for the equality of the sexes, races and estates. These views, which were dangerous in politics at the time, were marked by a liberal interpretation of the Bible and the ideas and ideals of the French Revolution, and were far ahead of their time. In his paintings, Blake often used religious motives, such as the Fall of Man in Satan Exulting over Eve and The Temptation and Fall of Eve. William Blake died in 1827 largely unnoticed and destitute, but today is considered a major artist whose works still have an impact on pop culture. © Meisterdrucke
