Description

Samson and Delilah is one of four prints in a series illustrating the influence of women over sages and heroes. (The others are David and Bathsheba, Solomon's Idolatry, and Aristotle and Phyllis.) These depict the follies of love—that is, man's involvement with a woman leads to his misfortune.
