    About

    This white-line etching (Copy A, plate 41) has been taken from William Blake's epic poem "Milton a Poem", which combined etched text and illustrations in two books. This particular print shows a landscape with river and hills with the hero John Milton, standing naked and haloed; his arms supporting a kneeling, gowned, white-haired figure (perhaps Urizen or Ololon). This is likely a scene of compassion, although the figures' positions also raise the possibility of sexual contact. Hand-coloured relief etching, white-line etching, 1804-1811. 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.
