William Blake’s etching/watercolour “Ancient of Days”. :23.3 x 16.8 cm (9 1/8 x 6 7/8 in.) :British Museum, London* A deleted file is described by several sources as a copy held by Whitworth Institute, Manchester, though it appeared to be identical to this, which is said to be sourced from the British Museum. This copy is believed to be Blake’s final work, commissioned by Frederick Tatham. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
