The Tyger (W. Blake)

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.

William Blake (via observando)

afro-textured-art:

Europe Supported By Africa and America 
Date: 1796 
Artist/Maker:  William Blake, born 1757 - died 1827 (artist)
Illustration from John Gabriel Stedman, Narrative of a Five Years’ Expedition against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam
V&A:

This allegorical image is in the tradition of ‘The Four Continents’, in which the continents are depicted as female figures. Blake, the abolitionist, has included gold arm bands on the arms of Africa and America to symbolise their enslavement to the central figure of Europe. However, the fact that Europe is being physically supported by her companions suggests the possibility of a more equitable relationship.
