Although the British public preferred pictures of landscapes, Henry Fuseli championed the cause of history painting—depicting subjects from the Bible, ancient and modern history, and great literature that expressed grand ideas. Seeking an audience for such images, he produced a series of paintings for an exhibition illustrating the work of the 17th-century English poet John Milton. The political and personal hardships Milton endured appealed to Fuseli and to the Romantic temper of his time. Here, in one of three paintings showing Milton’s life rather than his poetry, the blind poet, inspired by an inner light, dictates his epic poem Paradise Lost to one of his daughters.
