The painting depicts the biblical story of Samson and the Philistines[1], and was created in 1863 in Academicism style[1]. It is considered to be one of Bloch's most important works, as it marked his entry into the Danish art scene with its virtuoso technique and narrative devices such as the way spectators are drawn into the scene, and its sheer concentrated action[2][3].
