Bryullov Karl Pavlovich. 1799-1852 Creation date:
The plot is taken from the second Book of Samuel Old Testament (11: 2-3). Bathsheba is wife of Uriah the commander, who served the king David. David saw Bathsheba bathing at the time and ordered to send Uriah on the path to death, after that, he took Bathsheba to his palace. As punishment for this sin, David's firstborn died on the seventh day. Bryullov is interested not so much in the plot, but rather an ancient Eastern culture, its spicy beauty.
