The Judgement of Solomon - Attributed to Otto van Veen

An important painting depicting the Judgement of King Solomon, a story from the Hebrew Bible in which King Solomon of Israel ruled between two women both claiming to be the mother of a child. He tricked the parties into revealing their true feelings by using a fallacious appeal to moderation, considered by some to be an archetypal example of an impartial judge displaying wisdom in making a ruling.

The painting is attributed to Otto van Veen, also known by his Latinized name Otto Venius or Octavius Vaenius, (c.1556 – 6 May 1629) , who was a painter, draughtsman, and humanist active primarily in Antwerp and Brussels in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century. He is known for running a large studio in Antwerp and for being, from 1594 or 1595 until 1598, Peter Paul Rubens's teacher.

His work is recognizable by the typical used color scheme , the architectural setting and the set-up of the characters, some of which have their backs turned towards the spectator.

Painted in oil on oak panels. Framed in the original, period black stained oak frame.

Antwerp. Late 16th/early 17th century.

Dimensions (of the frame): 135cm x 110cm

Provenance: from a private collection in the Liège region.

In very good, original condition, with some minor restorations and revarnishing, undertaken by the previous owners.
