Rev McKendree Robbins Long:Picture Painter of the Apocalypse

David Steel and Brad Thomas; With contributions by Charles Reagan Wilson and William Ferris
“McKendree Robbins Long’s extraordinary works are visual manifestations of twentieth-century millennial Protestant Christianity. They depict the difficulty of achieving righteousness amid temptation, while also portraying the biblical promise of reward for the saved and eternal anguish for the foolhardy. Like Howard Finster or Sister Gertrude Morgan, southern religious painters with whom he has been compared, Long painted canvases that drew imagery from the Book of Revelation. His apocalyptic themes and vivid style have led curators and collectors to categorize him as an ‘‘outsider artist.’’… The catalogue features thirty large, high-quality reproductions of Long’s works and numerous smaller examples of his oeuvre…. This book provides a wonderful introduction to Long’s life and work and places him within the framework of southern history.”

Book review from Winterthur Portfolio: A Journal of American Material Culture – William D. Moore, University of North Carolina at Wilmington Volume 37, Number 23, Summer/Autumn 2002
