Though he died in the 1800s, the work of English poet and painter Blake took on new significance when it was embraced by artists associated with the “Summer of Love” in 1967. Blake’s espousal of “free love” and his disdain for organized religion struck a chord with the hippie movement, inspiring songs by Jimi Hendrix and indirectly coining the name of the Doors. The Block’s latest exhibition collects post-World War II works inspired by his prose, as well as a selection of Blake prints and illuminated book.
