Potiphar’s Wife a modern Illustration, maybe from a religious book for children.
Despite the costumes and architecture seem well done it’s anything but a good painting. The gestures are ridiculous, it looks much more as if they are playing or acting in a cheap theatre. But above all it’s very interesting that she is depicted as an oriental woman our hero in contrast looks like an all American boy.
