The King’ s Bedpost
Four Artists’ Collaboration
Bycatch from my Snark hunt:
- [left]: John Everett Millais: Detail from Christ in the House of His Parents aka The Carpenter’s Shop (1850).
Location: Tate Britain (N03584), London.
- [right]: Philip Galle after Maarten van Heemskerck: Detail from redrawn print Ahasuerus consulting the records (1564).
Location: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
Of course this could be incidental. It is said, that Joseph’s head was modelled after the head of Millais’ father.
