Anthony Van Dyck biography

This work is linked to Susanna 1:20

The elders secretly watched Susanna while she was taking a bath. Here they approach her and tell her to lie with them.

Susanna is clearly frightened. The older man taps her on the shoulder, while the younger one tries to pull away the cloth she uses to cover herself.
