"Lot and His Daughters" is another present-day painting inspired by a Bible story. Sodom and Gomorrah was in flames= an aftermath of God's wrath on sinful living and disrespect. Lot had been given the chance to leave and fled with his family which had been warned to not look back on the destruction of their hometown. His wife did and was turned into a pillar of salt. The daughters had the task of providing the family eer. Pa was the only man around.
In this "story" the daughters are nurses and the aging man was inspired by Lucian Freud, my favorite portrait painter who died last year.
