And they set for him [Joseph] separately and for them [the brothers] separately, and for the Egyptians who ate with him separately, because the Egyptians could not eat food with the Hebrews, because it is an abomination to the Egyptians.

They sat before him [in order of age, with Yehuda, the oldest, at the head of the table]…and he had portions brought to them and they drank and became intoxicated with him.

At this lavish meal, Joseph, the grand vizier of Egypt invites his brothers to dine with him, his true identity unbeknownst to them. The cool greens and blues contrast the warm glowing sunlight. There is a feeling of anticipation. Joseph sits elevated at his own table, surrounded by his entourage. On the other side of a grand banquet hall, his brothers sit together. Yehuda, the brother destined for kingship, is seated, his face glowing. The Egyptians who would not dine with the Hebrews are relegated to the background. Painted with much attention to detail, a lot is left to the imagination and so much seems implied. There is an atmosphere of intoxication.
