Early compositional study for The Deluge

Provenance: Private Collection


Compared with an early compositional study, which showed Noah and his family entering the sanctuary of the ark, this study marks a dramatic change in both the mood and treatment. The palette is darker, and all sense of salvation is now lost: the ark has vanished and emphasis is placed on the victims of the flood.
