Stumbled over this painting of IS I've not seen before.

Artist was Jacques Emile Blanche, painted in 1915.
Interesting background too. Men crippled by the war, among other things.

'The Flood'


I'm losing at around the time Lucifer starts singing... the opening music is pretty ominous, tho...


ALEEEN- I don't know what you're hearing here that's so great... maybe this just falls under my "snyprrr rejects recitation" junctum. Maybe it's the English singing?

"Oh, LORD, Thy Will shall ever be wrought"

 ::)


Yea, I'm just not "getting it"... ithe music can be cool, but then some maaan has to start singing...


I do like the 'Building of the Ark' orchestral interlude...

BUT THEN COMES THE "COUNTING OF THE ANIMALS", OY VEY!!!

Ok, so the Flood:

Still, the lesser parts certainly don't overweigh how great it is  8)
