Rembrandt van Rijn, The Parable of the Talents, Musée du Louvre, Paris, 1652

Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed; so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours [NRSV, Matthew 25:24-25].'
