December 6, 2011—The Mead Art Museum is delighted to announce a major forthcoming acquisition: The Raising of Jairus's Daughter by the British Romantic painter, poet, and printmaker William Blake. This rare tempera painting is the gift of Dr. Henry Webster, Class of 1948; it arrived at the museum yesterday, and will go on view in the museum’s galleries later this week. We hope you’ll have the chance to see it!
