Object description :

"Fixed Under Glass, XVIIth Century, La Mort d'Absalon"
Large Fixed under glass, XVIIth century. Italian work, representing Absalon killed by Joab. 18th century frame. 66x53cm of scuffs on the painting. A battle was held in the "forest of Ephraim" (a locality perhaps east of the Jordan), where the army of Absalom was completely routed. Himself, fleeing, took his hair (which he wore long) in the branches of an oak tree. However, David had commanded his men to be considerate and kind to the one who was his oldest living son. On the other hand, Joab, the king's general, was moved by less restrained feelings and, as a soldier refused to do for a thousand shekels, he pierced Absalom's chest 3 times, who was still struggling in the branches. Despite the victory of his troops, David was consumed with grief.
