This impressive and dramatic canvas was painted between the years 1613 and 1615. The piece measures 220,3cm by 243,8 cm and it is grandiose in its size and also in its content. It portrays Lot the moment where Lot, cornered by the people of Sodom flees with his daughters.
The figures are displayed in a line. First, there is one of the angels, dressed in a beautiful blush red and green drapery. The figure has his back turned to the viewer, so we can only get a glimpse of his face, framed by the shiny golden locks of his hair. He is guiding the group. A translucent piece of cloth, leaving his left hand and flying towards the horizon seems to show the way.
Right after the first angel, we can see Lot and his wife. They both look tired, old, and miserable. The clothes that cover their bodies are dark. Lot’s wife has a black scarf covering her hair, and she wipes her tears with a white cloth. Lot’s body is turned to the angel, but shoulders move to one side while his face is turned to the daughters. His full frontal face shows details of his suffering and his long white beard and hair.
Right behind him, the second angel is looking over his shoulder, as if it were whispering some advice. The angel has a concerned facial expression, light brown hair, soft pale skin and tinted red cheeks, all while being wrapped by orange ensembles. Just a little bit of its wing is showing, as it is covered by Lot’s daughters.
They are dressed in shiny, luscious dresses. One of them holds a basket filled with their family treasure. Her light blonde hair is beautifully braided. The other daughter also carries something wrapped around a sack over her head, most likely of the family’s belongings. She is clearly pregnant, and her dress has several colored layers.
They are all barefoot, and the scene is set probably on the back door of Lot’s home. It’s the edge of a cliff. It’s possible to see the ending of an architectural structure behind the figure. The sky is dark, and the colors on the horizon are ominous and cloudy. The whole piece is reasonably colorful, as the dresses and skin tones don’t contrast among themselves. Only Lot’s dark clothes and the darkness on the horizon stand out from the palette.

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself,
use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service,
meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
All orders ship with UPS, FedEx or DHL and will arrive directly to your home or office. A tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as the order leaves our studio so you can track it online. All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
