Exhibition in the Robert Raynor Gallery at The National Gallery of Victoria
(28 April - 30 June 1999)

The National Gallery of Victoria houses one of the world's most important collections of art by William Blake (1757 - 1827), the English artist, poet and mystic. This archived exhibition and web site incorporates all aspects of the collection, including the Dante and Milton watercolours, the hand-coloured relief prints from the prophetic books, the Virgil wood-engravings, the engraved Illustrations of the Book of Job and the volume of hand coloured engravings of Young's Nights Thoughts. Also included is the NGV's beautiful, early edition of the Songs of Innocence, as well as works acquired since the 1989 publication of the Gallery's complete Blake holdings.

Principal sponsor for the exhibition was Transurban Citylink.
