Description: Judah offers his staff, cord and signet ring as a pledge of payment in exchange for sex with his daughter-in-law Tamar, who poses as a prostitute outside the city of Enaim. In the background, the prostitute is no where to be found, as Hirah attempts to deliver Judah’s payment. The artist’s signature (Jan Goeree, 1670-1731) is located at the lower left corner.
