Notes

While traveling from Judea to Galilee, Christ and the Apostles broke their journey in
Samaria, pausing to rest by Jacob’s well. While Jesus was waiting alone, a Samarian woman
came to fetch water and in the course of their dialogue, Jesus revealed to her as the Messiah.
(John 4:5-42).
In 1657, Rembrandt made another etching of the same subject (White-Boon 70), but this
totally different in style and composition. Between 1655 and 1659 Rembrandt used this story
as the basis for three paintings, a drawing and this etching. All are drawn in his late ‘pictorial’
style, with its bold handling and glowing treatment of light and shadow.

Provenance

Freiherr Adalbert von lanna (1836-1909) (Lugt 2773) and GJ in circle (Lugt 1164a); Lanna’s
collection was one of the best in his time.
