[Jacob Draws Water For Rachel's Animals.]
Cum priuilegio. [n.d. c.1640].
Engraving. Size: 425 x 375mm. (16¾ x 14¾".) Trimmed to image, losing text Biblical verses and dedication.
A scene from the Old Testament in which Jacob draws water from the well to water Rachel's flock. Although Jacopo Tintoretto is inscribed as the artist, it has since been discovered that he is wrongly attributed on the plate. The image was in fact engraved from a painting by Paulo Veronese.
