Times Critics' Top Art Books of 2019 Published to accompany the major, one-stop-only Blake retrospective now at the Tate Britain (through Feb. 2), this beautiful book distills the spirit of the revolutionary poet, artist and prophet-saint of what we now call social justice. The scholar E. P. Thompson once said that to study Blake (1757-1827) is to realize that there are a great many William Blakes. And there's a new one to be found here at every turn of the page. ---Holland Cotter, The New York Times
