Rembrandt and Potiphar's Wife
â€œThatâ€™s me out of here then, no more Rembrandt, society painter.â€™â€
The story of Joseph and Potipharâ€™s wife the biblical figure whom the wife of a top Pharaoh official tried
unsuccessfully to seduce, is a favourite motif in Renaissance painting. Rembrandt treated the theme
in an etching of 1634. The National Gallery of Art, Washington has a Rembrandt oil on canvas of 1655
treating the same subject. In Matthew's version of Joseph and Potipharâ€™s wife the landscape in the background is Cap Esterel seen from the hills of Monaco. Behind Rembrandtâ€™s seducer, above the unmade bed is the painting, Satyrs and Nymphs.
