Description

A pupil of Antonio Zanchi and a great exponent of Venetian art at the end of the 17th century, the painter owed much of his success to his room paintings depicting biblical, historical or mythological subjects.

This painting bears witness to the painter’s predilection for theatrical backdrops, evoking classical architecture. Another important reference to the theatrical world is the pose of Samson asleep in the arms of his lover Delilah.

Oil on canvas, dimensions ext. 67,7×48,8, int. 61×43,3 in.
