“The Great day of his Wrath” is a painting which is created by John Martin which was painted from 1851-1853. It is a very artistic painting, the way colors and certain images are brought to your attention. The artist was trying to convey his image of how the end of the world may very well look like. By showing all types of destructive events in a single image, it can show a very terrifying idea of how the end of the world can actually look like. He uses dark symbolic colors such as red, black, and flaming orange to show a dark tone towards the viewer. The picture depicts the end of humanity, by showing dead corpses on top of each other. The artist does not tell us one exact event for the end of the world but instead uses multiple events in the painting to create a horrendous Armageddon. He creates the image of an Armageddon by having a bright white light on the top of the painting to convey the mighty hand of god, while uses a dark morbid color on the bottom with volcanic eruption to show an evil satanic side. The painting across the middle depicts the final battle fought between good and evil, which will mark the end of the world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
