Antique Biblical Allegorical Framed Painted Fresco

Unavailable

This framed fresco is believed to date from the eighteenth century or earlier, and resides in a nineteenth century giltwood frame. This allegorical scene may depict Jesus and Mary Magdalene, or possibly Jacob meeting Rachel at the well in Haran, which is where he first met and fell in love with the shepherdess who became his wife. In the Hebrew Bible Jacobs was the son of Isaac and Rebecca, the grandson of Abraham and Sarah and of Bethuel. Frame was recently regilded. Frame comes from Vienna (Wein) as noted by the stamped mark. Partial handwritten and painted paper and cardboard labels reside on the rear, including a royal coat of arms depicting three crowns on a shield with blue ground, similar to the royal Swedish coat of arms.
