English engraver, painter & poet
William Blake is famous for his inventive art both in his poetry and in painting and for his prophetic vision.
William Blake's best-known works are the two collections of poems,
'Songs of Innocence' and 'Songs of Experience'. Both treat similar subjects from the contrasting views
of innocence and experience.
Hiernoymus Bosch is one of the most original painters
of all time.
Bosch expressed the fears and beliefs of the people towards the end of medieval times in an age when new discoveries had altered old traditions and when many people feared that the devil was gaining the upper hand in human life.
Botticelli painted mythological and relgious pictures, which are are distinctive for their rhytmic line, delicate color, and poetic feeling.
His works include frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the Madonna called the 'Magnificat' in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence; the 'Adoration of the Magi'; and the 'Last Communion of St.Jerome'.
