Haman and Ahasuerus visit Esther

Haman and Ahasuerus visit Esther
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on canvas (73 × 94 cm) — 1660
Esther 7:2 - And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.
Esther is seen disclosing Haman's evil plans to her husband, King Ahasuerus (Artaxerxes). Haman, sitting on the left, is staring at the table. The king looks as if he finally realizes what has been going on. Esther looks embarrassed for causing problems for one of her guests.
