Additional Information

Albion is the ancient name for Britain, and in Blake’s own mythology, Albion is personified as the primeval man. In 1804, Blake created a black and white etching of this piece, and added the inscription: 'Albion rose from where he labourd at the Mill with Slaves / Giving himself for the Nations he danc'd the dance of Eternal Death'. Painted at a time of political unrest and revolution, Blake depicts his Albion in a joyous state, rising above the darkness he stands upon and emanating light.

Because of the size and condition of the original work, 40 x 30 cm is the largest size option we are able to offer.

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was an English poet and artist. Blake trained as an engraver and had a career in etching, engraving and illustration. Although he exhibited his watercolours at the Royal 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. Although he received little public recognition in his lifetime, he has since been hailed as one of Britain’s greatest artists, and celebrated for his anti-slavery and pro-equality views.
