Now at Tate Britain
Until 15 January 2012
(offer available until 30 November 2011)
Visionary, eccentric, populist and epic, John Martin was a controversial but key figure in nineteenth century art. Like his canvases, this wildly dramatic artist with his visions of heaven and hell, was larger than life.
Organised in partnership with the Laing gallery, Newcastle, this is the first major exhibition dedicated to Martin’s work in over 30 years. It brings together his most famous paintings of apocalyptic destruction and biblical disaster from collections around the world, as well as previously unseen and newly-restored works.
This exhibition presents a spectacular vision, capturing the full drama and impact of John Martinâ€™s paintings as they were originally displayed. Just as in the nineteenth century, these epic and often astounding works must be seen to be believed.
