Exhibition History:

CPLH, William Blake and His Followers, 4 Dec 1982 - 13 Feb 1983.

In the light of a full moon, a man walks along a road entering a village with closely-nestled thatched cottages and a church tower. He carries a handbell. Two persons sitting in an arbor next to a large farmhouse look over at him; oxen lie asleep on the opposite side of the road, behind hedges. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
