Art on Friday; To Hell and back

The other day after my wednesday blog a friend e-mailed me and we talked about how hell would be an apropriate theme for this week; since all the suicide bombers think they are going to heaven with 72 virgins or more and we think not. So especially for them; paintings of where we all think they are going, if they're lucky that is...

Hieronymus Bosch

The Damned Cast into Hell" - a fresco by Luca Signorelli

The Great Day of His Wrath, by John Martin

Francisco de Goya-Saturn devouring his son

Jan van Eyck-Crucifixion and last judgement

Giovanni da Modena, Affresco dell'Inferno

Outstanding, Kati. Wat een prachtige werken heb je gevonden. De fantasie van de Oude Meesters blijft weergaloos mooi. Om van te genieten. Tks.
