Blake sc.
[Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London, Novemr. 11th 1818]
Stipple and line engraving, sheet 265 x 215mm (10½ x 8½"). Trimmed, losing publication line.
Plate from Abraham Rees' 'The Cyclopaedia; or, Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature', engraved by the visionary artist and poet William Blake (1757-1827) to illustrate a text by sculptor John Flaxman. After a period of coolness, Blake and Flaxman were on good terms again at this time, and the sculptor intervened to secure Blake several engraving commissions (including this one) in the 1810s. Without these commissions, Blake might well have fallen into dire poverty at this time.
