Rebecca at the Well POUSSIN (1594-1665)
See http://www.wga.hu/frames-e.html?/html/p/poussin/3/36rebecc.html for the source of the above photograph of the painting and notes. Although a Frenchman, Poussin spent most of his painting career in Rome. He is known for his painting on both religious and Greco-Roman subjects. You see the latter influence in this painting of the scene from Genesis 24:12-38 when Abraham sends his servant to his old country, Ur, to find a wife for Isaac, since the Canaaninte women weren’t fit for him. Poussin inserts the rural scene in a setting of Classic Antiquity.
