Frans Francken II (Antwerp 1581 - 1642 Antwerp) - The Sacrifice of Isaac
Oil on marble
32,5 x 26 cm (12 3/4 x 10 1/4 in.), octagonal

The present painting is one of the only three known paintings executed on marble by the artist, the other being the Lamentation of Dead Christ in the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum, Aachen, and The Crucifixion in a private collection in Italy. In the present painting, Francken uses the white ground of the marble to maximize the dramatic effects of the composition.
