Cruikshank was a bright-eyed young boy who was gifted with a keen sense of observation and surprising humor that drew him away from his father and brother and gave him a strong and distinct individuality (Blankard 25). His talent and dedication led to the creation of many works, which were admired throughout Europe, and today throughout the world. He died in 1878, as one of England's best known and most prolific artists, who was thought to have designed as many as twelve thousand printed images in books, magazines, pamphlets and prints.
The Work of William Blake William Blake, a visionary English poet and painter who was a precursor of English Romanticism, combined the vocations of engraver, painter, and poet. He was born on Nov. 28, 1757, the son of a London hosier. Blake spent all of his relatively quiet life in London except for a stay at Felpham, on the southern coast of England, from 1800 to 1803. Largely self-taught, Blake was, however, widely read, and his poetry shows the influence of the German mystic Jakob Boehme, for example, and of Swedenborgianism. As a child, Blake wanted to become a painter.

By 1772, he was an apprentice to an engraver, James Basire, who taught him the secrets of the trade very well. Basire sent him to make drawings of the sculptures in Westminster Abbey, which sparked his interest in Gothic art. Blake's father was a hosier, and sent him to the Royal Academy in 1779 as an engraving student. While at school, Blake absorbed the religious symbolism and linear design characteristic of Gothic style. While studying there, he rebelled against the academic conventions of Sir Joshua Reynolds, president of the academy.
As time went by Blake suffered because of the gallstone. This condition eventually took his life on August 12, 1827, approximately six p.m. He was seventy years old.
