"Lot and His Daughters" by Albrecht Dürer, painted around the turn of the 16th Century. Dürer was obsessed with Doomsday, and he's responsible for catalyzing people's awareness of it with his famous Apocalypse woodcut series. But in this picture we see a more modest dystopia: the fire-and-brimstone end times of Sodom and Gomorrah.
