Tate has taken a leaf out of John Martin's oversize book and has pulled out all the stops to create the largest display of the artist's work to be seen in public since the early 19th century.

It continues the recent move in the art community to rehabilitate the artist's legacy " to reassess these stunning apocalyptic canvases after a century and a half of water has passed under the bridges of his beloved Thames.In addition to the blockbuster oil paintings, the exhibition includes Martin's mezzotint illustrations for The Bible and Milton's Paradise Lost, alongside landscape watercolours and his illustrations of dinosaurs and various engineering projects.
