Graham Clarke, artist, author, illustrator and humorist, is one of Britain's most popular and best-selling printmakers. He has created some five hundred images of English rural life and history and of further afield. Born in 1941, Clarke's upbringing in the austerity of war-time and post-war Britain, made him reliant on his own imaginative resources. Lord Clark also wrote enthusiastically in praise of Vision of Wat Tyler: "the whole book is a splendid assertion that craftsmen still exist and cannot be killed by materialism. A few idealists are the only hope for decent values". He has attracted universal admiration for his revival of beautiful, hand-coloured prints in the tradition of Thomas Rowlandson.

Etchings and calligraphy, Graham Clarke.
Walter "Wat" Tyler (died 15 June 1381) was a leader of the 1381 Peasants' Revolt in England. While the brief rebellion enjoyed early success, Tyler was killed by officers loyal to King Richard II during negotiations at Smithfield, London.
Walter Tyler, commonly known as Wat Tyler (1320 – June 15, 1381) was the leader of the English Peasants' Revolt (1381) also known as Tyler's insurrection. He has been described as the hero of nine days, referring to the length of the uprising. Social unrest in the wake of the Black Death encouraged peasants in various parts of Europe to rebel against the feudal system. From Life and Adventures of Wat Tyler, the Brave and Good, published in 1851, historians have reconstructed his youth, prior to his appearance as a historical figure. An early event is detailed in this history. With the help of fellow-villagers, Tyler routed out a nest of robbers which had plagued his neighborhood. Following a failed romance he joined the English army which was then preparing to leave for France. He was present at the Battle of Crécy where King Edward II appointed him to assist the courageous Black Prince.
Work up imagination to the state of vision, and the thing is done. William Blake Over the years we’ve had books. Given Blake’s radical political and philosophical views, it’s not surprising that he chose Wat Tyler as one of his subjects, as he was the leader of England’s first great popular rebellion, the 1381 Peasants’ Revolt against Richard II’s poll tax. Tyler became a popular figure for artists and writers during the French Revolution and through the early 19th century, such as Thomas Paine, Edmund Burke, and poet Robert Southey.
