William Blake is the occult artist.  Drawing from the various dissenting and mystical currents that were circulating in late 18th century London he created a personal mythology that is unique in the history of art and literature. As he famously said he must create his own system or be enslaved by another’s man, and Blake followed his own star from beginning to end, never wavering once.
