William Blake (1757 – 1827) was a English Romantic Age painter, poet, and printmaker. His wild imagination and idiosyncratic views have kept him in high regards with the art critics. He began his career as an engraver and also did relief etchings. His views on conventional religion were controversial as were his views on the 19th century “free love” movement and Age of Enlightenment philosophy. Our pattern set has most of his recognized works including “Ancient of Days”, “Newton”, and “The Ghost of a Flea”.
