Divine wrath has overwhelmed the corrupt city of Sodom and has devastated a rocky coastal landscape. An angel takes Lot and his family by the hand to flee the city in time. They are urged not to look back on the burning town, but Lot’s wife does so and is changed into a pillar of salt. (Genesis 11: 14–19). The Biblical theme presents the painter with a fine opportunity to depict an infernal landscape.
