Cleanse Thy Soul, for the Devil Cometh Nigh (Photo Resurrection Series)

 This is another piece taken from the Colliers Photographic History of the European War, published in 1915. The original was from a painting by Henry Reuterdahl. Henry was well known for his nautical and naval paintings. This is one hell of a tragic piece originally called "HMS Cressy Sinking". 

For those curious about the copyrights on such work, this piece was copyrighted before 1926 and has long since gone into the public domain. But resurrecting it as something totally new and surreal is the goal. With that in mind here is "Cleanse Thy Soul, for the Devil Cometh Nigh".
