WILLIAM BLAKE'S COLLECTION.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

From the many exhibits and lectures which it is the privilege of a member of a university community to attend, it is difficult for a man with limited leisure time to choose the most worth while. But even the busiest can pass with advantage a few moments at the collection of the works of William Blake which is now being shown at the Fogg Art Museum this week.

To most of us, William Blake is known only as a poet, but his full genius as an artist, a religious thinker and a writer is vividly shown in this exhibit of illuminated manuscripts.

There is no other artist like Blake: such strange, impressionistic color schemes and visionary books cannot be imitated. The spirit of Blake could exist in no other man. To miss seeing this complete collection of his works now means to miss seeing them forever, because it will probably be impossible to get together again books from so many private collections.
