John Martin, Paradise Lost - Satan Arousing the Fallen Angels (Book 1)


Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney

Date: 1824
Technique: Mezzotint with drypoint, 26.7 x 20.1 cm

...on the beach / Of that inflamed sea he stood, and called
His legions, Angel forms, who lay intraced
Thick as autmn leaves...
Under amazement of their hideous charge,
He called so loud, that all the hollow deep
of Hell resounded.
