Rebecca at the Well


indistinctly signed on the wall lower right with monogram: G... 

oil on canvas

canvas: 31 3/4 by 43 3/4 in.; 80.5 by 111.1 cm.

framed: 43 1/4 by 56 in.; 109.9 by 142.2 cm. 

This painting presents itself well. The surface is a slightly dry varnish. There is a small unrestored square in the extreme lower right corner, which some European restorers do to show the change post treatment. The painting has been wax relined with a fine relining canvas, and there is a well repaired tear in the sky upper right, addressed on the reverse with a plastic patch. The painting is painted in a thin manner, and under uv there are numerous, scattered restorations throughout: the sky, the figures, and landscape. Offered in an (antique?) Italian gilt wood frame with foliate motifs; the painting is set in a simple wooden slip.

Anonymous sale, New York, Christie's, 6 June 2012, lot 9;
There acquired by Paul Kasmin. 
Anchise Tempestini endorsed the attribution of the present lot when last sold to Girolamo da Treviso's based on a photograph. He noted the similarities it shows to the artist's marble reliefs of Jacob's Sons Presenting him with Joseph's Bloodied Cloak and Joseph's Cup Found in Benjamin's Sack, executed for the façade of San Petronio, Bologna (1524). The figure of Eliezer closely compares in typology and drapery style to the Evangelists in the so-called Protestant Allegory in the Royal Collection, Hampton Court, of circa 1542-1544, while the architecture in the background of both pictures is also quite like.
