Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by John Martin 50x70cm PosterThis important picture illustrates the Bible story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The two cities were destroyed as punishment for the immorality of their people. Only Lot and his daughters, seen hurrying away, were saved. Lot's wife ignored God's instruction not to look back, and was turned into a pillar of salt. The fiery red colouring is characteristic of John Martin's dramatic scenes of destruction, which illustrated scenes from the Bible and literature. The whirling storm in the sky was also a frequent feature of his paintings
