The Blinded Samson (1912) By Lovis Corinth

Samson was known for many things: slaying a lion with his bare hands; killing an entire army with only the jawbone of a donkey; having super human strength from his magic hair.

Sadly, his hair was cut in his sleep, so he lost his powers. He was then blinded, insulted, and enslaved. He died by asking god for his long hair/power, and then destroying the building in which he and his captors were in.
