Solomon worshipping Idols

Ca. 1750. Oil on canvas Room 022

Disobeying God, Solomon loved numerous women, who convinced him to turn to the idolatry of the pagan gods. These gods are here symbolized by Diana and Minerva, to whom Solomon dedicated a temple outside Jerusalem, where his wives and concubines burned incense and offered sacrifices.
