While this drawing is based on Ovid’s flowery account of the flood, and has certain elements in common with earlier depictions of the subject, for the most part it is not a literal illustration, but a highly inventive visual exploration with a focus on horror and despair.

 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
