Pieter Pauwel Rubens (Flemish, 1577-1640). Samson and Delilah, 1609-1610. National Gallery, London, UK

Samson and Delilah(1609-10) for the living room of Burgomaster Nicholaas Rockox (chairman of Harquebusiers); inspired by Adam Elsheimer; one of feet is truncated- does not depict essential extremity of giant - unlike other 2 paintings by R; colouring sensuous (more heavy-handed than Rubens?); drama - tension of what isn't happening - why in public - polit connotations?; Samson as man's fallen nature, seduced and betrayed; upper-left light source, flickering of candles, 'alive'
