John Martin, Paradise Lost - The Angels Guarding Paradise at Night (Book 4)


National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa

Date: 1825
Technique: Mezzotint with etching on cream laid paper, 19.5 x 27 cm

Ihuriel and Zephon, having discovered Satan in Paradise, escort him out past the Archangel Gabriel who is calling upon the Angel Host.

...by his gait / And fierce demeanour seems the Price of Hell
Not likely to part hence without contest;
Stand firm, for in his look defiance lours.
