2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By othoniaboys on February 19, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Some 55 years ago, when I was around 14, I discovered some of the magnificent panoramic paintings of John Martin in a four-volume illustrated book on the Bible (I forget the title), and I was swept away, even if the women in these scenes were dressed in a rather Victorian fashion that probably differed somewhat from the actual dress styles of Babylon and Nineveh in their heyday. I imagined that Martin was a great painter, and it was only after I grew older that I realized that he had been relegated to the attic, if not the basement, of the history of art. It is therefore good to see that he has gotten a bit back into vogue these days. The snobs may sneer at the Cecil DeMille of painting, but "I know what I like."
