UnknownThe Deportation of the Jews to Babylon
Born in Conde in 1797, Noel Dieudonne Finart debuted at the Salon de Paris in 1817 with a painting titled "Le Champ de manoeuvres de Clignancourt." Finart was well-known for his history paintings - especially those with military subject matter. This painting depicts the Jewish people fleeing from a burning Jerusalem following a siege by the Babylonians in 597 BCE. After the fall of Babylon to the Persian king Cyrus the Great in 539 BCE, exiled Jews began to return to the land of Judah. Building on Finart's talent as a history painter, this painting successfully captures the anguish of the Jewish women and children in the foreground with a ribbon of Babylonians on horseback in the middle ground. The Poussin blue sky is darkened by the burning Jerusalem in the background. This painting is marked by its confident brushwork and strong contrast highlighting the repetitive composition of pyramids of women and children.
