Abstract

From reproductions of Jan Steen's "Samson and Delilah" and of one of the rare drawings, which the writer has found and attributes to Steen, it appears probable that we have here a study for Steen's famous picture. It would further seem probable that Steen had to alter his first conception, as in the original form he had not kept to the Bible text, and that he made various changes in the composition. Nevertheless the general idea and all the figures can be recognised in this sketch.
