Ludwig Meidner (1884-1966), who belonged to the mystical wing of German Expressionism, developed his existing interest in Blake when he was forced to leave Germany in 1939. It is during his exile years that Meidner’s new style matured, and this was partly due to his new appreciation of Blake. The article examines the British context of Meidner’s engagement with Blake and outlines how he understood Blake in a cultural setting dominated by Neo-Romanticism as well as the existential fear of exile experience.
