THE SHOCK OF THE NEW BLAKE

Robert Hughes seems to have discovered some curious new verses of Blake’s, which he quotes without reference on page 235 of his recent study of modern art, The Shock of the New (New York: Knopf, 1981). Hughes writes that, “A century before Miró’s birth, William Blake had urged his readers to

Seek those images
That constitute the Wild:
The lion and the Virgin,
The Harlot and the Child.
That is the aim of Miró’s early paintings.”
