Bathsheba by the Italian painter Giovan Battista Naldini (1537-1591).
In some way it’s a perfect cool painting, much more drawing than painting. There are Bathsheba and her handmaidens all dressed in Roman fashion. The architecture is Roman as well, or at least what artists in the 17th century thought of Roman architecture. In the background there is King David on the balcony.
As I said: the arrangement is perfect like the painting.
