Satan Arousing the Rebel Angels

Blake’s 1808 watercolor, Satan Arousing the Rebel Angels, from the series of Paradise Lost illustrations commissioned by Butts, has been reproduced by dust-grain gravure, a rarely used continuous-tone process similar to aquatint, by Hugh Stoneman at the Print Centre, London. Dust-grain gravure was developed in the nineteenth century for monochromatic printing. This is the first time it has been used to produce a print in color, requiring three plates. Each print is extensively colored by hand after printing.

Blake’s Satan is being issued in the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Masterprints series, which also includes several other reproductions, by various media, of works from the National Collection of British Watercolours in the V&A. The prints are issued in certified, hand-numbered editions of 575 and range in price from $300 to $475. Satan Arousing the Rebel Angels (image size 20.5 inches × 15.5 inches, on a sheet approx. 30.5 by 24.5 inches) is listed at $475. It is being made available to Blake’s subscribers for $425, including shipping. Send orders to V&A Masterprints, 48 South Molton Street, London W1Y2JU; telephone 071-499-5582; fax 071-491-9985.
