Seaport with the Embarkation of the Queen of Sheba

Although this painting depicts the dramatic biblical narrative of the Queen of Sheba meeting King Solomon, the action of this painting lies with its light. A bright sun sits on the horizon, created a rosy glow throughout the atmosphere of the scene.
