“Towards the Day after Tomorrow…”
Essays on Humanity’s Teloi, and the Eschaton

~ Art Works Discussed ~

Including illustrations of all the paintings and drawing cited in “Towards the Day after Tomorrow…” would have been prohibitive not just on cost for a theology book, but also in terms of the byzantine complexity of rights and permissions: ownership not just of a work of art, but the photographic rights are complex and multi-layered (galleries, universities, photo agencies, photographers, media groups, variations according to which country the work is reproduced in, etc...). This list contains hyperlinks to the world wide web of all the paintings and drawings referred to, also links to other websites that have pictures of these works.

Most of the works cited (pre twentieth century) can be viewed in The Web Gallery of Art
The Web Gallery of Art
The Web Gallery of Art is a searchable database of European fine arts
and architecture (3rd-19th centuries), currently containing over 47.300
reproductions. Artist biographies, commentaries, guided tours, period music,
catalogue, free postcard and mobile services are provided.
