One of my favorite museums, The Morgan Library, opens its exhibition William Blake’s World: “A New Heaven Is Begun” this Friday. It marks the first Blake show at the Library in two decades, featuring over 100 works from the visionary artist. Included are water colors, drawings, and illuminated manuscripts. Not to be missed.
William Blake’s World runs until January 3, 2010.
