Undercover Surrealism, taking the visual richness of DOCUMENTS as its starting point, recovers…

    William Blake: Seen in my visions – A Descriptive Catalogue of Pictures

    R260

    In 1809 William Blake was an obscure poet and engraver with little or no reputation. When he held an exhibition of his work in a private house in Soho in the west end of London it was not a success; the only review in the press was extremely unfavourable and few of the public came. One of those who did was the writer Charles Lamb, who later reserved special praise for the catalogue that accompanied the show, describing it as ‘mystical and full of visions’.

    The catalogue reveals much about the ambition of the man who was to become one of the most unique and highly regarded artists and writers of his time, with a worldwide reputation that continues to grow. In it we learn of his theories about painting, read his unsparing critiques of other artists and gain some extraordinary insights into the workings of his mind. Part commentary and part manifesto, it is as radical as it is in places eccentric.

    Fully illustrated in colour with reproductions of all his surviving works from the original exhibition, the book also includes an essay by Martin Myrone, a leading authority on British art of the period, making it an essential purchase for all those wanting to know more about the life and work of this fascinating and enigmatic figure.
