YALE CENTER/TORONTO EXHIBITION 15 September-14 November 1982

This major loan exhibition will demonstrate the imaginative scope of Blake’s interests, the high quality of his graphic art, and the technical inventiveness into which he combined verse and illustration. It will also explore new interpretations of his work in the light of the intellectual and aesthetic currents of his times.

David Bindman is the organizer of the exhibition and the author of its illustrated catalogue. He has selected approximately two hundred works, including a substantial number of the watercolor and tempera illustrations to the Bible and the works of tempera illustrations to the Bible and the works of Milton, Gray and Dante. One significant feature of the exhibition will be the unique colored copy of Jerusalem. The most important of the “illuminated” books and individual color prints will be represented by several copies in order to demonstrate the development of Blake’s ideas throughout his working life.

William Blake: His Art and Times will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Blake’s work in North America in recent years. It draws upon the extensive Blake holdings at Yale and in the collection of Mr. Paul Mellon. The Tate Gallery and the British Museum are foremost among foreign lenders. From Yale the exhibition will travel to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.
