ABOUT THIS PIECE Baroque Painter Guercino's Christ and the Woman of Samaria at the Well was made in 1641 and the original painting is in Thyssen Bornemisza Museum, Madrid. The original size of the work is 116 x 156 cm and is made of oil on canvas. The meeting between Christ and the woman of Samaria at the well is only recounted in the Gospel of Saint John. Christ, travelling to Galilee, reached the Samarian city of Sychar. While the disciples went ahead into the city to buy food, Christ sat down to rest by a fountain. A woman approached the well to draw water and Christ requested water to drink. Surprised, the woman questioned why a Jew was asking her for water, given that Samaritans and Jews had no dealings with each other. The woman, who had had five husbands and lived with a man (as Christ knew), began a dialogue with him that astonished the disciples when they returned to the city, as it was not the custom to speak to unknown women. This episode, which takes place by a well and in which the water of baptism is discussed, has been seen to symbolise the conversion of gentiles by the Word, among other concepts. The Artist: Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591 - 1666), better known as Guercino was an Italian Baroque painter and draftsman from Cento in the Emilia region, who was active in Rome and Bologna.
