Lot and his Daughters, Hendrick Goltzius, 1616

Lot and his Daughters, Hendrick Goltzius, 1616

oil on canvas, h 140cm × w 204cm. More details

God decided to destroy the sinful city of Sodom, sparing only the righteous Lot and his family. Because Lot’s daughters were afraid of remaining childless – all of the men had perished – they got their father drunk and seduced him. Goltzius creates a striking contrast between the sunburned skin of the elderly Lot and the smooth skin of his two daughters.
