Description from Artscapes UK:
The Napoleonic Wars sent shockwaves across Europe. As the carnage continued, hope for a better future was squashed by political turmoil, social upheaval and industrial change. With this came the first murmurings of Romanticism in art – an emphasis on emotion and individualism. Over the next two weeks we’ll review both William Blake and Francisco Goya as they desperately try to find a new reality through art.
This week, William Blake. We remember him as a visionary, a man who lived in a parallel universe to our own. But the more we dive into his output, the more we see he was a man of his time. A reformer on every level – socially, politically, spiritually and artistically. He spent a life-time fighting for what he believed was a better future - and his chief weapon was the arts.
