Dr. Michael Phillips is an eighteenth-century scholar retired from the University of York currently domiciled in Scotland. He has curated major exhibits of William Blake’s works at the Tate in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Petite Palais in France, and most recently the Ashmolean in Oxford. He has also hosted smaller exhibits at Rollins College, the College of Holy Cross, and Tiffin University. His scholarship is focused upon William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Blake and the French Revolution, and Blake’s printmaking methods. The “reproductions” of Blake’s works shown here — it is perhaps better to say these works were made “by Dr. Phillips after Blake’s originals” — were produced by Dr. Phillips following Blake’s printmaking methods as he understands them from his research. See photos of the printmaking demonstration for more details.
