A traditional subject of the Weibermacht series, the story of Potiphar’s wife (Genesis 39:6–20) warns against female lust. Joseph is brought into Potiphar’s household as a servant and is the object of several attempted seductions by the master’s wife. She endeavours once more, leading to his flight and the abandonment of his cloak. The wife then uses the garment to substantiate accusations of Joseph’s sexual advances to her husband, who imprisons Joseph. Ciro Ferri accentuates the wife’s desire throughher exposed flesh, the sumptuous appointment of her bedroom, and her frantic grasp.
