Subtly lit and in a setting of richly varied chiaroscuro, Susanna's beauty occupies the foreground of the painting. Absorbed in her mirror image, she is yet unaware of the two intruders - unlike the viewer, who is thus forced into the position of a voyeur. Distorted perspectives, strong light contrasts and the dynamic retreat into the depths of the vast orchard are characteristics of Mannerism, and Tintoretto became its most prominent Venetian exponent.
Jacopo Robusti, known as Tintoretto (1518-1594), Susanna an the Elders, ca 1555/56
