Depiction of the biblical scene presenting Rebecca and Abraham's servant Eliezer at the well, who offers her the presents to make her become the wife of Abraham's son Issac (1st book of Moses, 24). The artists, presumably the work was created by the sons of Paolo Veronese, painted the protagonists brighter than the others figures. The painting, which has been family-owned since the 18th century, was in the past presented in Palazzo Sarcinelli in Conegliano.


The painting had been relined. During the doubling a horizontal running narrow gap (probably coming from an old canvas seam) had been closed, which becomes apparent as crease. Overall there are tiny loss of color and two larger ones are at the upper right edge and at the lower right corner. This corner is additionally loosely and bears a small loss of material. Two convex bumps with loss of color can be seen upper right and lower right and in the left part of the center is a concave bump with loss of color. The edges show rubbed spots due to the frame and overall are small retouched spots. The overall impression is good. The frame shows usual signs of age and wear and small loss of color. (msc)
