Rubens – ANALYZED PAINTING #4
Hey everyone, welcome back to another fun analyzed painting. I hope you enjoy getting inside the artists head as much as I do! Today we are looking at this dramatic scene of Samson and Delilah by Peter Paul Rubens. Supposedly Samson gets his strength from his hair because he never cuts it. As he falls asleep, the man cuts the hair of Samson and he loses his strength, allowing the authorities to catch him. You can read the whole story HERE and see a large reproduction of the painting.
