Catalogue Note

This still life shows an open book with the inscription "Sodoma et Gomora", a reference to the story in the Book of Genesis. In the story, the divine judgment by God was passed upon the neighboring towns of Sodom and Gomorrah, which then were completely consumed by fire. These cities are usually metaphors for vice.
