Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen   -  
David and Abigail

David is accompanied by his soldiers on the left as he rides his horse. He looks down at Abigail on the right as she looks back up at him. Behind Abigail stand two women and behind them, camels laden with packs. David and his soldiers wear armor of the late middle ages and Abigail wears a dress from the same period.
