Below is Albrecht Dürer's chaste Lot Fleeing with his Daughters from Sodom (1498), with the two cities being vaporized in the background.
In the conventional telling of Genesis 19, one of the raciest chapters in the Bible, two angels warn Lot that he should escape Sodom before it is destroyed.

The Dürer painting is in the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC. The Altdorfer is in the
Kunsthistorische Museum in Vienna.
