The images of the story of Susanna and the Elders have been integral to the creation of a number of artworks. The story comes from the aprochal related to the biblical character Daniel. The paintings on this theme that stimulated my interest in paintings by Tintoretto. I chose the theme because it is symbolic of several characteristics of human behavior, including the exploitation of women and the indictment of voyeurs as well as the insights about justification. Visually it uses images of the nude female and windows and vegetation.
