After the visit to William Blake’s exhibition at Ashmolean Museum, I went to Pitt Rivers Museum.

When you visit there, in the first room, you will meet skeletons of dinosaurs and stuffed animals and birds.

and puppets from all over the world.

I went to see William Blake: Apprentice and Master at Ashmolean Museum.
It was the last day of the show and the tickets were sold out.

The exhibition showed William Blake’s prints and especially focused on his progress and development in print-making techniques.

The contrast of his bold design and composition, and the sensitivity of print-making techniques interests me.
