Edwin Long - The Crown of the Justification
note: this doesn't otherwise seem to be on the Internet. In my auction catglg - Sotheby's April 1980 - it is so wide I couldn't scan it as one image.
Signed with monogram and dated 1888
80 x 140"
Exhibited RA 1888
The picture was meant to show the judging of an important personage before the 42 assessors (representng the cardinal sins of the Egyptian moral code) as mentioned by Diodorus Siculus.
