By William Blake
Although Blake worked in poverty and obscurity all his lifestyles, he's famous at the present time as one of many preeminent artists and poets of the English-speaking international. An 1825 fee from client John Linnell enabled him to target illustrating Dante's stories — the kind of visionary paintings to which his abilities have been supreme. The artist spent the final 3 years of his existence developing those pictures, which diversity from thoroughly comprehensive items to tough sketches. Blake's hugely unique process deals not just a very good creation to Dante's allegorical stories, but in addition a brand new and clean point of view for these already accustomed to the Divine Comedy.
