Great Art, Bad Philosophy Week: Leon Bonnat's "Job"

This week I'm going to showcase great works of art which reflect some sort of terrible philosophical stance. Many of these works I enjoy and respect from an artistic standpoint though I don't share the artist's philosophy.

Incidentally, this is one of the most amazing paintings I have ever seen in person, despite the fact that it glorifies self immolation.
