Описание: In this richly illustrated portrait, a prize-winning biographer surveys the entire sweep of William Blake's creative work while telling the story of his life William Blake, overlooked in his time, remains an enigmatic figure to contemporary readers despite his near canonical status. Out of a wounding sense of alienation and dividedness he created a profoundly original symbolic language, in which words and images unite in a unique interpretation of self and society. He was a counterculture prophet whose art still challenges us to think afresh about almost every aspect of experience-social, political, philosophical, religious, erotic, and aesthetic.
He believed that we live in the midst of Eternity here and now, and that if we could open our consciousness to the fullness of being, it would be like experiencing a sunrise that never ends. Following Blake's life from beginning to end, acclaimed biographer Leo Damrosch draws extensively on Blake's poems, his paintings, and his etchings and engravings to offer this generously illustrated account of Blake the man and his vision of our world. The author's goal is to inspire the reader with the passion he has for his subject, achieving the imaginative response that Blake himself sought to excite.
The book is an invitation to understanding and enjoyment, an invitation to appreciate Blake's imaginative world and, in so doing, to open the doors of our perception.

Pop culture and visionary fantasy mix freely in the paintings of this self-taught innovator
Although he has long enjoyed a prominent place in the canon of self-taught artists, the Ohio painter William Lawrence Hawkins (1895-1990) has received less than his fair share of attention in recent times. This monograph--the first in 20 years--introduces Hawkins's exuberant paintings to a wider audience at a time when more and more general museums are recognizing the powerful appeal of America's self-taught artists. Focusing on the artist's most aesthetically successful, confident and characteristic works, it brings special attention to his use of space, his collage practice and his work in series, of which his nine Last Suppers are perhaps the most extensive example.
Drawn from important public and private collections across the United States, William L. Hawkins: An Imaginative Geography includes approximately 50 of Hawkins's most important paintings, both well-known pieces and others rarely seen. All of Hawkins's favorite subjects are covered here, including cityscapes, landscapes, exotic places, animals, current events, historic scenes and religious scenes. Also reproduced are a rarely seen assemblage and a selection from his large oeuvre of drawings.
