Cambyses aan de Vlaamse kust

Georges Martyn UGent (2012) PRO MEMORIE (HILVERSUM). 14(1). p.126-136
abstract
The Judgment of Cambyses is a well known exemplum iustitae, dating back to Herodotus’ Historiae, and very popular in the middle ages. The king condemns the corrupt judge Sisamnes to be flayed. His skin is draped on the bench. The new appointed judge Otanes, seated on his father’s skin, will always be aware to judge justly… The story’s most known representation is a diptych of Gerard David, today in the Bruges Groeningemuseum. This article draws attention to some other early modern paintings of the same story, all commissioned by magistrates near the Flemish coast: Bruges, Dunkirk and Nieuwpoort.
