Assyrian conquerors, picture, image, illustration

Israel is conquered by the Assyrians, by James E. McConnell

The southern kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Babylonians, but the northern kingdom fell to the Assyrians in 721 BC. They were merciless conquerors and besides decapitating many people also drove out around ten of the original twelve tribes of Israel. Our picture shows the colourful chariot of the Assyrian king, Sargon II, and was painted by James E. McConnell, one of the most gifted and painterly of illustrators, who was blessed with a vivid historical imagination.
