Belshazzar's Feast


Oil on Canvas Oil 152.4 x 249


A pamphlet etching was produced inscribed 'John Bull 1821' (aka John Martin!) which gave information, with arrow lines to guide the eye in sequence, to 28 of the various features compiled into the scene. I have attempted to replicate this here. Moving your mouse to the points of interest across the colour painting provides the original descriptive captions.
