Blake's Notebook

The Notebook of William Blake

William Blake is famous today as an imaginative and original poet, painter, engraver, and mystic. But his work, especially his poetry, was largely ignored during his own lifetime, and took many years to gain widespread appreciation. Blake wrote and sketched in this notebook, which came into his possession after his brother's death in 1787, for 30 years.

William Blake's World: "A New Heaven is Begun"

William Blake's World: "A New Heaven is Begun"

The Morgan's Blake collection—one of this country's most distinguished—began with purchases as early as 1899 by Pierpont Morgan. During the tenure of Charles Ryskamp, director from 1969 to 1986, major gifts almost doubled the size of its Blake holdings. In recent years Ryskamp's own gifts of engravings, letters, and related materials have significantly enriched its scholarly resources.

This online exhibition is presented in conjunction with the exhibition William Blake's World: "A New Heaven Is Begun" which was on view September 11, 2009, through January 3, 2010.
