Wood engraving 1820-21

33x74mm [87x126mm]

Ref: Binyon 140 state ii/ii; Bindman 605; Bentley 504

One of seventeen illustrations by William Blake for The Pastorals of Virgil published by Dr. R.J. Thornton, 1821.

A strong impression on thin China paper, laid on a larger white wove backing sheet. One of a small number of impressions printed for John Linnell Jnr in or around May 1892.

The importance of these small engravings is without question. They have had a profound influence on English art throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
