Literature: Lotte Thrane, “Tusmørkemesteren”, 2008, mentioned and reproduced in vol. II, p. 166. Lotte Thrane notes: 'The size of the painting, its execution and the themes explored, indicates that this is one of Frølich's most prestigious works. Here, we see him in the role of history painter. However, this does not make it uninteresting: his abilities for composition are evident, and the stylisation and bold colours are clearly connected to his other works 'De kristelige dyder' (The Christian virtues) and 'Kampen om Guldkalven' (The Worship of the Golden Calf), which are from the same period".
