Simeon Solomon (1840 - 1905) was born in London as the youngest of eight children of the famous Jewish couple Michael Solomon and Catherine Levy. His two siblings Abraham and Rebecca were also famous painters. It is therefore assumed that Abraham taught his little brother the basics before he was accepted at the Academy of the painter Carey. Later, Simeon moved to the Royal Academy in London. There he met Dante Gabriel Rossetti , who introduced him to other supporters of pre-raphaelism. Many Pre-Raphaelites admired Solomon's works and he soon became a member of the Pre-Raphaelite circle.

Solomon's early works often featured Old Testament motifs or scenic representations of Jewish life and religious rituals, as in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. In addition, he also dealt with the typical for the Pre-Raphaelite medieval literary motifs. About the connection with Rosetti Solomon made the acquaintance of the writer Algernon Swinburne, whose controversial novel Lesbia Brandon he illustrated. With Swinburnes influence, the themes in Solomon's pictures changed. He turned away from the Hebrew-influenced scenes and increasingly painted motifs of Roman-Greek antiquity. From this artistic phase especially the painting "Habet!" Was celebrated by his contemporaries.

In 1873 Solomon's career came to an abrupt end. This year, he was picked up with another man in a public restroom in London. He was accused of homosexual acts, then commonly referred to as sodomy. He got away with a fine at first. When he was arrested again in Paris the following year, he was sent to jail for three months. His reputation suffered. He was no longer allowed to exhibit his works, which made it difficult for him to sell paintings. The artist scene soon forgot him. Only a few writers such as Oscar Wilde or Walter Pater supported him and collected all his works. But the sensitive Solomon increasingly succumbed to alcoholism and was finally admitted in 1884 in a so-called workhouse. He continued to paint there, but the alcohol had left its mark and his paintings never again reached the quality of the earlier works. Solomon died in poor conditions due to alcohol abuse. © Meisterdrucke
