This collection showcases Blake's fascination with a world unique to his own perception in which the boundaries between imagination and vision dissolve away. It includes one of Blake’s “Visionary Heads,” from a series of sketched portraits of historical figures who visited Blake in spirit form as he sat by his London fireside, along with other works created from a place somewhere between dream and vision.
