Canvas Prints William Blake

Even though his surname sounds quite contemporary, William Blake is an artist born in the mid-18th century. He was a painter, graphic artist and poet – he was the precursor of Romanticism, although he was creating his works during the Enlightenment. He gained the nickname 'Mad Blake' because he often experienced religious revelations. His artistic activity is saturated with Blake’s mystic personality. He was interested in occultism, spiritualism and alchemy. At the beginning he was creating reproductions of famous paintings, and he worked as an engraver. He invented a graphic technique called 'Illuminated Printing’. He was a huge enthusiast of Michelangelo’s and Raphael’s works. We can notice the influence of these great masters in his works. The subject of Blake’s paintings are mainly religion and spirituality. He made illustrations for the Old Testament Book of Job. In his artistic message the line was more important than the colours used. Blake did not paint with oil paints. He was painting with watercolors and in tempera. He was creating monotypes as well.
