Joseph and Potiphar's wife


RCIN 405477

Joseph was bought by Potiphar, the captain of Pharaoh’s guard, and appointed overseer of his household. One day Potiphar’s wife caught him by his garment and said ‘lie with me’; Joseph fled, leaving the garment in her hands. The painting was one of a group by Gentileschi brought together by Henrietta Maria to decorate the Queen’s House, Greenwich.
