I always wanted to do a series of Deadly Sins but I was not sure how to paint them. Should I do an allegory? A pictorial drama? Then I found the solution. I love history and literature so I decided to look for all historical, mythological and literary characters whose lives fit with the Seven Deadly Christian Sins.
Deadly Sinner #1 : The Wrath of Alexander
Alexander the Great had a mighty temper. This scene could depict any of his many furious outbursts on his extraordinary journey from Greece to India. He slaughtered every man, woman and child in Tyre when the stubborn island city refused to submit to him. He punished a Gazan governor by dragging him behind his chariot while the man was still alive. In a drunken fury he killed his own general, Cleitus the Black, when he dared challenge him. And so on. And so forth.
