Blake's Water-Colours for the Poems of Thomas Gray: With Complete Texts

Blake's Water-Colours for the Poems of Thomas Gray: With Complete Texts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the dawn of the 19th century, Blake created this imaginative series of 116 watercolors to illustrate 13 poems by Thomas Gray. Including such popular poems as "Elegy in a Country Churchyard" and "Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat," these rarely exhibited treasures remained exclusively in the hands of collectors for close to 175 years. This is the first inexpensive, full-color reproduction, with the complete text of the poems.

Book News Annotation:

Presents 116 seldom-seen watercolors created by Blake to illustrate 13 poems by Thomas Gray, including such popular ones as "Elegy in a Country Churchyard" and "Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat." Originally commissioned by Blake's artist friend, John Flaxman, for his wife's library, these treasures have remained in the hands of collectors for close to 175 years, jealously guarded and rarely exhibited. Oversize: 9.25x11.50<">.
