Description
 
A poet, engraver, painter and mystic, William Blake was known for his symbolic expressions of religious visions. Blake bypassed the traditional Church and believed he experienced God directly.

Apprenticed in 1771 to an engraver, Blake later illustrated his own copperplate engravings and watercolors. Some of his works containing both text and illustrations were the Marriage Of Heaven And Hell, Songs Of Experiences and Songs Of Innocence. Blake's religious convictions are evidenced in his wife's commentary, "I have very little of Mr. Blake's company, he is always in Paradise."
