"Lightning Struck a Flock of Witches" by William Holbrook Beard, dating from the 19th century, presents a dramatic and chaotic scene. It depicts a group of witches caught in a tempestuous moment, struck by a bolt of lightning. The chiaroscuro technique is employed here, with the stark contrast between the darkness of the stormy sky and the bright, illuminating strike of lightning, highlighting the figures in distress. The witches are shown with expressions of shock and fear, their bodies contorted by the unexpected force. This work embodies a sense of dynamic movement and the supernatural, capturing a moment of intense narrative in a single, powerful image. Beard was known for his often humorous depictions of animals and figures, and this painting may carry a satirical tone, despite its ostensibly dramatic subject matter.
