Unsettling Paintings by Great Artists – The Great Red Dragon Series by William Blake


These provocative and disturbing series of watercolour paintings depict ‘The Great Red Dragon’ in various scenes from the Book of Revelation.


In this narrative the Dragon, identified with Satan, schemes to seize the soon-to-be born Redeemer from his mother. Derived from the Virgin Mary of the Gospels, the figure known as the Woman Clothed with the Sun also stands for Israel and for the Church.


And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth. – (Rev. 12:3-4, KJV)
