John Martin is unique among English Romantic painters. He became celebrated and immensely popular in the early 1800s as the creator of huge Biblical canvases and prints and engravings of doom and destruction, one of which hung above the Bronte sisters' bed and used to give them nightmares. He was a social visionary too, and worked out farsighted schemes for combating the effects of the Industrial Revolution, with vast sewage works and water supply plants. But they were far ahead of their time, and eventually reduced Martin to bankruptcy. Review traces the life and work of a man who was perhaps the first 'environmentalist.'
