Depicted person: Сусанна (Susanna)

Русский: Рубенс изобрёл новый тип сюжета, который, как он опредёлил, не относится к священному, хотя и не светский, так как взят из Священного Писания. Типичными примерами являются история Агари или эта история Сусанны и старцев. Данная версия библейского сюжета по жесту одного из старейшин, призывающего Сусанну к молчанию, прикладывая палец к своим губам, соотносится с картиной Рубенса (1607-1608) на эту же тему (галерея Боргезе, Рим).

English: Rubens invented a new type of scene which he defined as neither sacred nor profane, although taken from the Holy Scriptures. Typical examples are the story of Hagar or the Susanna and the Elders. In this version of the subject by the gesture of one of the Elders, who silences Susanna by raising his finger to his lips, comes from the painting of the same subject by Rubens (1607-1608) (Galleria Borghese, Rome).
