Joseph Accused by Potiphar's wife (Washington) (1655)



Joseph Accused by Potiphar's wife (Washington) (1655)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on canvas (110 × 87 cm) — 1655
Genesis 39:17 - And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:
Potiphar's wife accuses Joseph of fornication after he refused to be seduced by her. Joseph is to the left, in an odd position, especially when compared to the almost identical painting in Washington.
