BLAKE'S PICTORIAL SCHEMATA

The collection of images below should be considered in light of what W.J.T. Mitchell has called Blake's "pictorial style," or more specifically, "Blake's linear schemata." Mitchell's assessment of Blake's schemata appears in Blake's Composite Art (Princeton: Princeton UP, 1978) and more recently in Picture Theory (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1994). Where specifics regarding the individual plates (i.e., plate #, copy #, date) have not been provided,  I refer the reader to the Blake Archive at the University of Virginia's Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities.
