‘A revolutionary moment in painting’


There hath he lain for ages, and will lie The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee About his shadowy sides; above him swell

Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep, Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;

Then once by man and angels to be seen,

In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

 Alfred, Lord Tennyson
