18th Century, Willem Muys, Rebekka and Eliëzer at the Water Source, Oil on



Rotterdam-born painter Willem Muys (1720-1763) specialized in wallpaper paintings. Little is known about his work, as not many paintings can be attributed to him. His children Cornelia, Robbert and Nicolaes were trained by him and have all made a career as artists. In the story of Rebecca (Gen. 24: 46-67) the servant Eliezer is sent by Abraham to Mesopotamia where he has to find a wife for his son Isaac. In a prayer, Eliezer asks how he would be able to recognize the most suitable bride. It is revealed to him that the woman who offers water, not only to him but also to his camels will be the chosen bride. Rebecca appears at the well and offers him water to quench their thirst. She does not forget the camels. On seeing this Eliezer gives her jewels and obtains the permission of her brother and mother to accompany him to Canaan to be married to Isaac.
