A Museum Quality Print of Christ and the Samaritan Woman by Annibale Carracci for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artist finished this oil on canvas between the years 1595 to 1597. The original artwork measures 30 by 25 inches in size and now hangs at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest. This story was very popular with the Baroque painters. The scene portrays what happened in the Gospel according to John Chapter 4 verses 1 thru 30. Jesus meets a woman at a well and asks her for water to drink. The woman was surprised and asks Him "How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans." In the course of their long dialogue Jesus explains to her who He is and the story symbolizes repentance and the Gospel teaching of salvation is for everyone. According to a 17th century source, this painting was completed for the Benedictine Church of San Pietro in Perugia. Religious Fine art print #53
