  • Painting Description

    "Satan Tempts Christ with the Kingdoms of Earth from Milton's 'Paradise Regained', Book III lines 251-426, c.1816-18" is a work by the English poet, painter, and printmaker William Blake. This artwork is part of a series of illustrations created by Blake for John Milton's epic poem "Paradise Regained," which was first published in 1671. The poem itself is a sequel to Milton's more famous work, "Paradise Lost," and focuses on the temptation of Christ by Satan, as recounted in the Gospel of Luke.

    Blake's illustration captures a pivotal moment in Book III of "Paradise Regained," where Satan attempts to seduce Christ with visions of worldly power, offering him the kingdoms of the earth in exchange for worship. The artwork is emblematic of Blake's intricate style and his interest in biblical and literary themes. His work often explored the interplay between good and evil, innocence and experience, and the spiritual and material worlds.

    Created between 1816 and 1818, this piece is part of Blake's later body of work, which is characterized by a mature synthesis of his poetic and artistic visions. The illustration not only serves as a visual representation of Milton's text but also as a commentary on the themes of temptation, free will, and divine providence, which are central to Blake's own theological and philosophical inquiries.

    As with many of Blake's works, "Satan Tempts Christ with the Kingdoms of Earth" is notable for its rich symbolism and dramatic composition. The use of color, line, and form in this piece reflects Blake's unique approach to art-making, which combined traditional printmaking techniques with his own innovative methods. This work is an example of Blake's enduring influence on the Romantic movement and his contribution to the visual arts, particularly in the realm of literary illustration.

    Blake's illustrations for "Paradise Regained" are considered significant in the study of both his artistic oeuvre and the broader context of 19th-century British art. They continue to be the subject of scholarly attention and are appreciated for their aesthetic beauty and depth of meaning.
