  • Description
    Large antique oil painting of Samson and Delilah after Anthony van Dyck  
    Dutch, 17th Century 
    Height 165cm, width 233cm
    This very large artwork is modelled after Anthony van Dyck’s (1599-1641) oil painting of Samson and Delilah dated to c. 1620. The painting reflects the biblical story of Delilah’s betrayal of Samson, where she tells Philistine officials that the secret to Samson’s great power is contained in his uncut hair. 
    The name of Delilah has since become synonymous with treachery and betrayal. The viewer is drawn to her as the primary subject of the painting, in contrast to the muted hues of Samson and the Philistines, Delilah is illuminated by her pale skin and shimmering robes. The crowding of the other characters around her further draws her into the viewer’s eye. 
    The painting is unframed.
    Drawing on an Old Master’s painting and depicting a dramatic biblical scene, this incredible work of art would be a magnificent addition to the appropriate interior space.
