44 x 53. Luca Giordano is the composer of the original of this work, which is regarded as one of the choicest pictures in the world. The piece here catalogued is a very old and choice copy, bearing every evidence of having been made in the time of the artist. The grouping is done with great power, and proves the artist to have been a close anatomical student. The prostrate giant is struggling in his cords, while his tormentors stand over him with whips to aggravate his madness. The treacherous Delilah stands by, as if enjoying his misery. As a whole, the work is an impressive one, and will command attention. [P. 55.]
