This fabulous hand colored reverse print on glass was produced in England during the late 18th century, circa 1790 to 1800 period. The engraving depicts a scene of Christ and the Samaritan woman, this scene has been depicted through antiquity, see the works of Carracci, Veronese and Catena to name but a few. The scene shows a passage from John 4 in which Christ talks with a Samaritan woman at the well in a town in Samaria called Sychar. The passage is fascinating as Jesus breaks religious and social boundaries in interacting with the Samaritan woman.
The reverse print is housed in a stunning period correct frame. This is the perfect item for anyone who has a passion for history, religion or loves all things Georgian. This fine reverse print will display excellently in any home, we have not found another like it!
