The Great Red Dragon paintings are a series of watercolor paintings by the English poet and painter William Blake, painted between 1805 and 1810. It was during this period that Blake was commissioned to create over a hundred paintings intended to illustrate books of the Bible. These paintings depict ‘The Great Red Dragon’ in various scenes from the Book of Revelation. 

“And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth.”

Sometime I wish the Seven Realms fandom was bigger because then I’d have more people (any people) to fangirl with. But other times I’m just like: MINE YOU NO TOUCH and I thank the book gods that nobody (as of yet) wants to fight me over Hanson Alister.

The Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun, William Blake. 1803-1805.

William Blake, both a writer and an artist, frequently painted Biblical scenes, including this scene from the Book of Revelations: 

“The woman clothed with the sun” is from Revelations 12:1: “A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” She is with child, about to give birth, but “there is a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…[about to] devour her child as soon as it was born” (Revelations 12:3-4). Here we can see the monster looming over her, her eyes wide with fear. I am especially fond of this depiction, the way Blake expertly depicts the play of lights and shadows; I think using watercolor instead of oil makes it look wonderfully delicate.
