"Here in two beautifully produced volumes [volume one only offered] is the first complete catalogue of the paintings, watercolors, drawings, and color prints of one of the English-speaking world's greatest and most widely studied artists. Also included are works attributed to William's brother Robert and his wife Catherine. The culmination of over twenty years of research, these volumes are packed with new information and identifications. Martin Butlin has divided the catalogue into sections corresponding to phases in Blake's artistic career and has considered groups of related works together. For each entry there is full information on size, medium and techniques, date history, and other pertinent data. Where appropriate, there is also a discussion of the relationship of the work to Blake's thought and writings and an explanation of its symbolism and significance. Every traceable work is reproduced (with the exception of a few series that have been fully published elsewhere) and a large proportion of them are in colour. This monumental study will become a standard and indispensable work of reference for anyone interested in William Blake's art or poetry."—Publisher
