In this exhibition the Apocalypse is witnessed through captivating artworks inspired by the writings of John of Patmos. Completed around 100 C.E., John’s Book of Revelation anticipates a final judgment by analyzing such foreboding precursors as terrifying beasts and natural disasters.
Recoiling from frightful threats and aspiring for eternal salvation, medieval and Renaissance artists produced carvings, metalwork, woodcuts, stained glass windows, and illuminated manuscripts that matched fears about the final days with promises of renewal. Through images of peace and heavenly dominion, the art of the Apocalypse balances hopeful messages with the visions of the end.
