Apocalypse: Christ and Candlesticks -- Angel, blowing trumpet, flies above John, nimbed, seated, right hand resting on scroll on lap, raising left hand. Open book, pen case and inkpot are on ground behind him. He looks toward Christ, cross as nimbus, holding sword in mouth, left hand on knotted sash on breast, flames at feet. He is flanked by seven candlesticks. All are on island in landscape; boat sails in background. Illustration of Revelation 1:12.
