This and two other pictures, 'The Great Day of His Wrath' (Tate Gallery N05613) and 'The Plains of Heaven' (Tate Gallery T01928) compose a triptych, and are the last major works Martin produced before his death. They are generally considered among his most important achievements, possibly his masterpiece. The subjects are taken from The Book of Revelation. 'The Last Judgement' illustrates the central event of the Book, and is composed from various passages in the narrative.
