Description - William Blake's Divine Comedy Illustrations by William Blake

Commissioned in 1824 - just three years before his death - Blake's sublime watercolors are not only peerless interpretations of Dante's vision of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, they are dramatic expressions of the great artist's integrity and imagination. Some apocalyptic, others angelic, the 102 plates range from completely finished pieces to rough sketches.

Author Biography - William Blake

Painter, printer, and poet, William Blake (1757-1827) was a master at expressing great literature through his art. Perhaps the finest engraver in English history, Blake's illuminated books - filled with sketches and watercolors that boggle the mind with their beauty and detail - are as sought after today as they were over a hundred years ago.
