Help me mock William Blake!

Can you help me find a snarky quote about the art of English poet and artist William Blake? Who said it, and what did he say?

More than once, I've read a quote that could be paraphrased as "I don't say he does not see angels; I only say he should take greater care in depicting them." Googling has proven fruitless, given the vagueness of my recollection. I have the impression that the speaker was another British poet, male, and roughly contemporary with Blake, but any of that could be wrong. Can you help me find the speaker's name and the quote?
