Antonio Bellucci biography

This work is linked to Genesis 24:22

At a well one of Abraham's servants inspects a possible spouse for Abraham's son Isaac. This Rebecca turned out to be not only attractive but also generous. The servant, probably Eliezer, gives her bracelets and earrings.

The painting has also been attributed to Pietro Liberi, one of Bellucci's teachers in Venice.
