Dramatic Scenery

Jephtah's Daughter (1859-60) by the French painter Edgar Degas (1834-1917). Degas painted only very few mytological or biblical subjests, he was much more interested in everyday life scenes. This painting is one of his early works when he returned from Italy where he was influenced by the great masters of traditional painting.
