Hello /hr/, Its been a while. I said I would be back after my last thread a couple years back with the subject of The Temptation of St. Anthony and before that the Globus Cruciger. This time I chose to explore the works from the masters regarding The Last Judgement.

Often Christ the Judge takes on more authoritarian tones and is usually depicted with the four mythical beasts of the apocalypse—the lion, the ox, the eagle and the winged man—whose multiple eyes and wings symbolize the ability of God to see and know everything that exists.

I will share what I have, which is extensive, on the topic. Please wait before contributing, as I will attempt to make this a very long lasting thread

I will start with my personal favorite Hieronymus Bosch.

Jan van Eyck Crucifixion and Last Judgement diptych 1430

The right hand wing, as with the Crucifixion wing, is divided horizontally into three areas. Here they represent, from top to bottom heaven, earth and hell. Heaven contains a traditional Great Deësis with clergy and laity; earth, in the mid-ground, is dominated by the figures of Archangel Michael and a personification of Death; while in the lower ground the damned fall into hell, where they are tortured and eaten by beasts. Describing the hell passage, art historian Bryson Burroughs writes that "the diabolical inventions of Bosch and Brueghel are children's boggy lands compared to the horrors of the hell Van Eyck has imagined."

The painting was to be A Vision of the Last Judgement, a painting by William Blake, that was designed in 1808 before becoming a lost artwork. The painting was to be shown in an 1810 exhibition shown in an exhibit of Blake's work, but the exhibit was cancelled after problems resulting from an 1809 exhibit of his works. The actual painting was lost, but earlier versions of the work survived.

The original was a seven foot by five foot painting. This is what we have left of it.

Il Paradiso -1590, is a massive (29.9 by 74.1 feet) oil painting on canvas that dominates the main hall of the Doge's Palace in Venice. It is one of the largest paintings of canvas in the world and was painted by Jacopo Robusti, known more commonly as Tintoretto.

The Virgin Interceding with Christ portrays the scene surmounted by the dove of the Holy Spirit and raised upon a dense semicircular rank of cherubim and seraphim. The Archangel Gabriel is shown holding out a lily to Mary, depicted with a halo of 7 stars. The divine light emanates not from the dove of the Holy Spirit but from the figure of Christ the Judge, shown holding a globe surmounted by a cross; to his right stands the Archangel Michael holding out the scales of justice. The order of the celestial hierarchy is respected: the evangelists appear in a semi-circle immediately beneath the main scene, with the saints aligned in the same order in which they figure in church litanies.

From the center of the stage a path of light opens up towards the Empyrean, allowing the souls of the Just to ascend (with the assistance of angels) and God's Grace to descend upon the Doge. At the center of this path is the radiant figure of a semi-veiled Archangel. The composition is crowded with around 500 figures, depicted in detail.

Jan Provost : The Last Judgment, the only painting whose attribution to Provost is confirmed by documentary evidence, comes from the Town Hall for which it was painted in 1525( images of the Last Judgment were also frequently displayed in city halls and courthouses, as a means of validating secular institutions’ claims to divine authority.) Its carved frame, still partly original and possibly designed by Blondeel, is an example of the ingenious ornamentation that flourished around these Bruges artists. The iconography of the judgment scenes differs significantly from what was traditional at the time. The symbolic relationship between Jesus and Mary, the carrying of the blessed across the water and the hellish pageant of friars and nuns, reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch, are expressive of a lively imagination.

Michalangelo's The Last Judgment. A fresco covering the whole altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Altogether there are over 300 figures, with nearly all the males and angels originally shown as nudes; many were later partly covered up by painted draperies, of which some remain after recent cleaning and restoration.
The work took over four years to complete between 1536 and 1541 (preparation of the altar wall began in 1535). Michelangelo began working on it 25 years after having finished the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and was nearly 67 at its completion.

The Last Judgment became controversial as soon as it was seen, with disputes between critics in the Catholic Counter-Reformation and supporters of the genius of the artist and the style of the painting. Michelangelo was accused of being insensitive to proper decorum, in respect of nudity and other aspects of the work, and of pursuing artistic effect over following the scriptural description of the event.

On a preview visit with Pope Paul III, before the work was complete, the pope's Master of Ceremonies Biagio da Cesena is reported by Vasari as saying that: "it was most disgraceful that in so sacred a place there should have been depicted all those nude figures, exposing themselves so shamefully, and that it was no work for a papal chapel but rather for the public baths and taverns". Michelangelo immediately worked Cesena's face from memory into the scene as Minos, judge of the underworld (far bottom-right corner of the painting) with donkey ears

A 17th century copy. The differences are interesting, Mary has turned into a state of adoration. Christ is looking away instead of at the judgement. Almost everyone's expressions are softened, thus playing down the impending doom of the wicked for a more modern take. Also notice there is zero genitalia, at this point puritanism had begun to set in.

Lucas van Leyden 1527

In the central panel of this triptych, Christ appears seated on a rainbow, a symbol of the universe. His feet rest on a globe, a sign of worldly power. The lily to the left of Christ represents purity; the sword to the right, sin. At the top of the painting you can see the Holy Trinity, consisting of God the Father, the son and the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove.
On the right-hand side, we see devils in the guise of monsters, driving the unrighteous towards the fires of hell. The latter disappear into the depths of the earth through the open mouth of the sea monster Leviathan. This prehistoric monster appears in the book of Job: ‘Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth’

Hubert Goltzius
He painted his "Last Judgement" in the tribunal of the city hall of Venlo in 1557, which is still installed there.
There is an amazing amount of detail here. The attention to the lighting is particularly impressive. Those in the shadowed background are given as much attention as those in the lighted foreground. The rainbows Christ sits upon are subtle here, but I like how they connect that which is below with that which is above, unlike most other renditions with them being only in the heavens. I think it is shows us that the Logos is with us down here always, even up to the point of no return, as no one in the painting is beyond its boundaries.

Frans Floris - 1565
Here, we see monstrous creatures, ghastly human-animal fusions snatching the damned and tossing them, wailing, into the fiery jaws of hell. At the bottom left, a bearded man turns his head, looking out of the picture space. He indicates a stone cube with Latin script from the apocryphal book of wisdom 6:10(I included 6:10-12 as they help give some context to the verse.)
10 For they will be made holy who observe holy things in holiness, and those who have been taught them will find a defense.
11 Therefore set your desire on my words; long for them, and you will be instructed.
12 Wisdom is radiant and unfading, and she is easily discerned by those who love her, and is found by those who seek her.

Bumping with a Greek triptych
>>
>>4470754
thank you for the bump, I love that one

Here is one from an unknown Italian master circa 1435

Hell here is a rocky territory, fractured by gorges and caves. In the center sits Lucifer chained, devouring the great traitors and defecates the proud. On the first band of rocks are tortured idolaters, schismatics and heretics: they are clubbed, beheaded, cut into pieces, impaled, hung from the gallows and thrown into the well. On the left side is bedlam for the greedy, the wrathful and the avaricious.

On the right side are the envious, the greedy and the lustful. The dark color of the devils contrasts sharply with the paleness of the damned. According to tradition, the devils are depicted with horns, bat wings and feral paws, but there are also many devils that take on the animal forms of beasts (bears, boars, donkeys) that also traditionally symbolize the corresponding vices.

The Vank Cathedral in Iran was one of the first churches to be established in Isfahan by Armenian immigrants settled by Shah Abbas I after the Ottoman War of 1603-05.

Church construction is believed to have begun in 1606, and completed with major alterations to design between 1655 and 1664. Vank means “cathedral” in the Armenian language.
The cathedral has greatly influenced the architecture and decorative treatment of many subsequent and smaller Orthodox churches in the entire Persian-Mesopotamian region.

Between 1977 and 2006, he damaged over 50 paintings worth more than 270 million Deutsche Marks (about 138 million euros) by Rubens, Rembrandt, Dürer and other artists. Bohlmann had a personality disorder and was treated in various psychiatric hospitals since a young age. In most acts, he sprayed paintings with sulfuric acid, targeting faces of the personages

Orazio Gentileschi - 1601

It is painted on a piece of alabaster with a rounded top, and depicts the moment when the Archangel Michael and his army succeed in hurling the rebel angels from heaven. The youthful figure of Michael is shown in the upper center of the composition, surrounded by his band of adolescent angels. Gentileschi creates a sense of their lightness of being by using the patterning in the stone to suggest that they are floating on clouds. He uses the same technique to suggest the flaming chasms into which the newly damned angels have been condemned. The area behind the archangel is washed in with a brilliant lapis blue, lightening into an earthy green, where the faint figures of other angels can be seen battling in the distance. The whole image is a tour de force of detail and deft balance, reliant on the natural veining of the stone for structure.

The Last Judgment by Fernando Gallego, Francisco Gallego, and workshop, 1480-1488, oil on panel.

This work is part of a massive altarpiece from Ciudad Rodrigo. The altarpiece was thought to have originally upwards of 42 panels, 26 of which survived to this day.

>>4518331
I would like to say because possibly they thought of images as idolatry but Catholic churches are often replete with icons of, usually, extra-canonical themes. Almost like they were avoiding specifically just using what the bible showed and feeling the need to add to it by focusing on saints and Mary and the like. But that's just my two cents, I have not read on the topic. Anyone who knows more on that is welcome to contribute the answer

The attention to detail of these Flemish masters is breathtaking. I really like the trumpeting angels on the right above the damned are all warning of the judgement and the loosing of the seals. But the one on the left is using his trumpet for a different purpose, to listen to the thanks and praise of the saved.
