About the artwork
This painting shows the book of Genesis (Elohim is a Hebrew word for God). For Blake, the Fall of Man did not occur in the Garden of Eden but at the point when Man was torn from the heavens down to earth. This painting was the first design in a series of ‘Large Colour Prints’ which were made with a mono printing technique finished off with watercolour and ink.

About the artist
English painter and poet of mystical themes conveyed in complex figurative imagery. Blake trained as an engraver and had a career in etching, engraving and illustration. Although he exhibited his watercolours at the Academy from 1780 he railed against academic art, insisting instead on individual inspiration. His own style was influenced by Gothic sculpture and Michelangelo’s figures. In the 1820s Blake was commissioned to illustrate Dante’s Divine Comedy. By his death he had received little public recognition but his rediscovery in 19th century was due to the Pre-Raphaelites, especially Rossetti.
