The Deceiver of the Whole World


That's the title of this painting done in the 1960s by the Rev. McKendree Robbins Long, who was born in North Carolina in 1888. It's in the collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. Although highly educated as an artist, Long gave up the pursuit of secular art in the 1920s to become a preacher. In the late 1940s he took up the brush once again to paint wild visions of the end of the world. Long died in 1976.
