William Blake. Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion, plate 6. 1804-1820, relief etching printed in orange with pen, black ink, and watercolor on wove paper, Yale Center for British Art, New Haven.

I will be speaking at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, London, on 29 November, as part of William Blake and the Idea of the Artist. The purpose of this event is to explore William Blake’s mythopoetic art in the context of political and economic realities, both during Blake’s time (1757-1827) and in current times. My talk will be on Blake’s mythology of the artist and the viability of a contemporary Blakean practice of art. This event is occurring in conjunction with a major Blake exhibition at Tate Britain (from 11 September 2019 to 2 February 2020), the largest Blake exhibition to be held in twenty years.
