C. Excerpt from Hilary Richardson's article, Bol's 'David's Dying Charge to Solomon' Studies Autumn 1978, U.C.D. P230 

'In fact, it is quite astonishing how scenes with a totally different emotional content are executed with a minimum of change in the basic material surroundings. These are a selection of the subjects covered: Isaac Blessing Jacob, Isaac Refusing to Bless Esau, Jacob Blessing Joseph's Sons, Sarah presenting Hagar to Abraham, Joseph Accused by Potifar's Wife, David Appoints Solomon his Successor, The Raising of Jairus's Daughter, St. Peter at the deathbed of Tabitha.' The article also contains many relevant illustrations.
