Saul and David (c. 1630)

Saul and David (c. 1630)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on panel (62 × 50 cm) — c. 1630
1 Samuel 18:10 - And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.
Twenty years on, Rembrandt made another painting with David playing the harp before Saul.
