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.

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.
