Queen Esther
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Bernard Lee | Share link: http://illo.cc/91781

Here’s a recent oil painting of mine titled “Queen Esther Denounces Haman the Agagite” depicting the moment in the Book of Esther where she identifies Haman as the one plotting to eradicate her people. Compositionally, I wanted to show her quite literally stepping into this significant moment as she is largely depicted as being a follower up to this point.

The original measures 30″ x 40″ making it one of my largest pieces and is painted on a cradled panel.

This was painted a few months ago, but I wanted to share it today in conjunction with the Jewish Holiday Purim.
