Dear Max

There are no painting by the name "David killing Goliath" - the one you have attached is just called "David and Goliath" from 1599 and it is currently in the Museo Del Prado in Madrid. There are two later same theme are currently to be seen in Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna (David with the Head of Goliath (Vienna)), and in Rome's Galleria Borghese (David with the Head of Goliath).
