Ecole BOLONAISE du XVIIème siècle, atelier du GUERCHIN
Amnon et Thamar
116 x 152,5 cm
Au revers de la toile, un cachet de cire rouge : dell'AccademiaParmense

  • Notre tableau est la reprise de la composition du Guerchin (toile, 123 x 158,5 cm) conservé à Washington, National Gallery of Art.
    Sœur d'Absalon, Thamar a été violée puis rejetée par Amnon leur demi-frère, fils aîné de David. Absalon console sa sœur, la prend chez lui, et rumine sa vengeance. L'année suivante il invite les fils de David à la fête du mouton et fait assassiner Amnon.
    Notre tableau illustre le verset 15 de l'Ancien Testament, 2ème de Livre de Samuel, chapitre 13 : « Puis Amnon eut pour elle une forte aversion, plus forte que n'avait été son amour. Et il lui dit : Lève-toi, va-t'en ! »
