Landscape with Bathsheba, Jan van Scorel, c. 1540 - c. 1545

oil on panel, h 100.4cm × w 203.9cm. More details

Everything here exudes Classical antiquity, from the ancient fountain statues to the Classical architecture of the palace. The biblical story is subordinate to the vast panorama. Bathsheba sits bathing at lower left and is being spied on by King David, the small figure on the balcony at upper right. Even from that distance, he is seduced by Bathsheba’s beauty.
