Samson and Delilah (Rembrandt)

Samson and Delilah is a 1629–1630 painting by Rembrandt, now in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin. It is first recorded in Frederick Henry of Orange's collection in the Hague in 1632 and passed down through the family until Huis Honselaarsdijk and its contents were bequeathed to Frederick I of Prussia on the death of William III of Orange. Frederick's son Frederick the Great probably moved the painting to Berlin in 1742. It was mentioned in the inventory of the Berlin Stadtschloss in 1793 as a work by Govert Flinck - it remained there until moving to its present home in 1906.
