  • A detailed monograph on this painter of apocalyptic scenes Could have done with a bit of further editing, as it can be repetitive at times John Martin is worthy of all attention, and this book accompanying a 2011 exhibition at Tate Britain is a fine introduction into the artist s peculiar world.


  • I was awed by the ultra detailed epic paintings by John Martin I had seen at the Tate and the Smithsonian The ridiculous level of detail and the apocalyptic imagery oscillate between brilliance and kitsch This book, tied to an exhibition I d dearly love to see, tries to explain why It turns out there was to Martin than meets the eye.
