.. Jugement de Salomon sur la querelle (..) - Scheits (1754)

Description: Antique religious print titled 'Jugement de Salomon sur la querelle entre deux femmes de mauvaise vie au sujet de leurs enfans'. Old print depicting Salomon's judgement (1 kings 3: 16-28). This print originates from 'Tafereelen des Ouden en Nieuwen Testaments […] Tableaux du Vieux & Nouveaux Testament.' 

Artists and Engravers: Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Matthias Scheits'. Matthias Scheits (c. 1625-c. 1700) was a German painter and draughtsman. He studied in Hamburg and in the northern Netherlands, where he was a pupil of Philips Wouwerman. His approach to painting was sketchy, divesting his subjects of solemnity and pomp. The generally cheerful scenes are surrounded by dimly lit space with an atmospheric landscape. His works include familiar Dutch genre themes, soldiers at their encampment, music at home, but he also executed religious subjects, notably in 152 drawings for engravings for this illustrated Bible.
