BLAKE IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
The Library of Congress in Washington DC has an extensive array of Blake's works in its Lessing J Rosenwald Collection. As a part of his interest in illuminated books, Rosenwald acquired copies of most of Blake's books. Rosenwald donated his collection to the Library of Congress and the National Gallery. The American people as the owners of these two institutions can claim as their own, one of the finest collections of Blake's art in the world. Although the works are rarely shown in public, you can enjoy them online everyday.
