Stipple, sheet 475 x 830mm (18½ x 32½"). Trimmed inside platemark; glued to album sheet in corners.
The dead being pulled into Hell, with Charon's boat, at the right of the bottom register. The figures of Charon (striking those in his boat) and Minos (the judge of souls, with a serpent wrapped around him) were staples of classical descriptions of the underworld and introduced to Christian hell by Dante, whose descriptions probably inspired Michelangelos's representations in the Sistine Chapel fresco. The heads of the Demons show the influence of Leonardo's grotesque 'caricatures', whilst Minos is traditionally acknowledged to carry the characteristics of Biagio da Cesena, who criticised the work in progress. Plate from Conrad Martin Metz's series of fifteen engravings reproducing Michelangelo's fresco 'The Last Judgement' in the Sistine Chapel (completed 1541).After moving to London by 1781, the German-born Metz (1749-1827) studied under Francesco Bartolozzi and exhibited at the Royal Academy before moving to Rome in 1801.

In England he became the most celebrated exponent of the 'stipple' technique whereby he produced prints using dots rather than lines (the medium employed here).
