Susanna and the Two Elders, 1913 by Franz von Stuck (1863–1928). Oil on panel, 56.6 × 17.8 cm. Private collection. Von Stuck’s second version of Susanna and the Two Elders from 1913 follows the traditional account faithfully, but uses a joke to make the elders look even more ridiculous: the small stream of water emerging from the orifice set in the wall of the pool is readily misinterpreted as the urine of the elder dressed in red. #arteesamor #historyofart #arthistory #arte #masterpiece #myth #mythology #susanna #elders #nude #franzvonstuck #symbolism #symbolist #symbolisme #beautiful #oilpainting #artwork #20thcenturyart #20thcentury #ancienthistory #ancientart #artgallery #artlovers
