Rebecca and Eliezer at the Well, Oil on Canvas, French School, circa 1700

Oil on canvas depicting Eliezer and Rebecca at the well (Genesis 22: 20-24).
Abraham sent his servant Eliezer to seek a wife for his son Isaac.
He leaves for Aram, in Mesopotamia, and meets Rebecca who spontaneously agrees to give him a drink (sign that he is waiting), and to fill the drinking trough to quench his camels.
The theme repeated many times in 17th and 18th century paintings, notably by POUSSIN (1660), and PIAZZETTA (1740),
French school, circa 1700.
Empire period frame.
