"Susanna and the Elders" is an oil on canvas painting by the Venetian high Renaissance master Jacopo Robusti, dated to 1556.
Robusti, also known as Tintoretto or Il Furioso, for the energy and "fury" with which he painted, depicted both sacred and profane subjects in a period known as the Venetian “golden century”. Susanna and the Elders depicts a scene from the biblical episode of Susanna, from the Book of Daniel.
The painting shows Susanna, a young married woman, sitting on the edge of a small pool, preparing to take a bath. She is watched by two elderly men, acquaintances of her husband, who desire her. The lustful elders are depicted in the painting hiding behind a rose trellis in her garden. They are watching and spying on her, trying to find an opportunity to catch her alone in the garden.
The story of Susanna and the elders was frequently depicted in art history. The painting is full of symbols. The objects beside the main figure included white pearls, silver jewelry, a silk shawl, and a silver jug. The painting is considered one of Tintoretto's "masterpieces". #europeanoldmasters#oldmasters#tintoretto#kunsthistorischesmuseum
