    About

    This illustration is one of a series produced by William Blake to accompany the epic Italian poem the "Divine Comedy" ('Paradiso', Canto XXV) by Dante (written 1308-1321). Blake's illustrations to Dante were commissioned by John Linnell; it was planned to engrave the series, but the project was interrupted by Blake's death in 1827. The figures in this illustration are likely to represent St Peter, St James the Greater, St John the Evangelist, Dante and Beatrice. Three figures each in separate roundels surround a kneeling figure in centre, behind him is woman who looks up to right. Graphite, pen and ink, and watercolour on paper, 1824-27. William Blake trained and worked as a commercial engraver, but is chiefly remembered for his original work as an artist, poet and illustrator. Blake invented his own technique of relief etching to produce his "illuminated printing", and printed and hand-finished all his books in small numbers, each copy being unique.
