This 1993 commemorative of Brazil celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Brazilian academic painter Pedro Americo. Americo studied under Ingres and lived in Rio de Janeiro and Florence, Italy at different times of his life. This painting is titled King David and Abisag (1878). It represents these two Old Testament figures from what is presented in the First Book of Kings.

From gotquestions.org, "Abishag, who was a very beautiful virgin 1 Kings 1:40, was brought to live at the palace. There she saw to King David's needs and warmed him with her body at night. the Bible states that there was no sexual relationship between the two of them, it was a matter of a caregiver attending her charge 1 Kings 1:4, although it was assumed that Abishag would become a de facto member of David's harem - a concubine, or secondary wife."
