Further information

In 1790 Fuseli decided to undertake an ambitious series of pictures illustrating the life and works of the poet John Milton. By 1800 he had completed 47 paintings for exhibition. A number of these were reproduced by Moses Haughton, who, in 1803, had moved into Fuseli’s large London townhouse as the painter’s resident engraver. The subject represented here comes from ‘Paradise Lost’.
