Before the Deluge: Apocalyptic Floodscapes

Yale Center for British Art, New Haven

18 Dec 2018 - 24 Mar 2019

From John Martin to John Goto, 1789 to Now

The myth of the apocalyptic flood is almost as old as civilisation itself. This exhibition considers how British artists since the Romantic period have responded to the idea of the deluge, and how they have contributed to our changing understanding of the Antediluvian during the shift from a religious to a secular mode of thinking. Find out more from the Yale Center for British Art’s website.
