The Opening of the Fifth Seal (Vision of the Apocalypse of St John)
El Greco (Domenikos Theotkopoulos)
If you were to ask me what was the single most powerful work in the Western oeuvre, this painting wins… without any competition, whatsoever. It portrays the Last Day as no other depiction has it… no other artist has even come close. THIS is art… not “Forbidden Art 2006″.
