BLAKE AT CORNELL
Cornell University will host Blake: Ancient & Modern, a symposium 8-9 April 1983, exploring the ways in which the traditions and techniques of printmaking and painting affected Blake’s poetry, art, and art theory. The symposium will also discuss Blake’s late prints and the prints of his followers, and examine the problems of teaching in college an interdisciplinary artist like William Blake. Panelists and speakers include M. H. Abrams, Esther Dotson, Morris Eaves, Robert N. Essick, Peter Kahn, Karl Kroeber, Reeve Parker, Albert Roe, Jon Stallworthy, and Joseph Viscomi.
The symposium is being held in conjunction with two exhibitions: The Prints of Blake and his Followers, Johnson Museum of Art, 15 March-17 April, and William Blake: Illustrator and Poet, Department of Rare Books, 1 April-15 May.
