John Martin Oil on Canvas, 1853
What an incredible painting! Could you ever believe that this is an oil painting done on a canvas and not that of a photograph taken by a professional photographer? Such is the realism of this painting. This painting depicts the End of the World due to natural catastrophe such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters. This painting is a work of Sir. John Martin who has drawn inspiration from his imagination of destruction of ancient Babylon city in Mesopotamia which is now part of the territory of the country Iraq.
