The Blinding of Samson (1636)

The Blinding of Samson (1636)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on canvas (236 × 302 cm) — 1636
Judges 16:21 - But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.
One of few paintings showing the moment Samson's eyes are put out by the Philistines. Delilah hurries away from the tent; in her hand, she is holding the hair that made Samson invulnerable.
