The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: A Facsimile in Full Color (Dover Fine Art, History of Art)

William Blake


Once considered as a super eccentric whose works skirted the outer fringes of English artwork and literature, William Blake (1757–1827) is at the present time well-known as an enormous poet, a profound philosopher, and the most unique and interesting English artists. Nowhere is his excellent poetic and pictorial legacy extra obtrusive than in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, which many examine his such a lot encouraged and unique work.
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is either a funny satire on faith and morality and a piece that concisely expresses Blake's crucial knowledge and philosophy, a lot of it published within the 70 aphorisms of his "Proverbs of Hell." this pretty variation, reproduced from a unprecedented facsimile, invitations readers to benefit from the wealthy personality of Blake's personal hand-printed textual content together with his deeply stirring illustrations, reproduced on 27 full-color plates. A typeset transcription of the textual content is included.
