Hagar und Ismael in der Wüste

Hagar und Ismael in der Wüste

More about this artwork
This painting is the companion piece to Lorrain's "The Expulsion of Hagar". The angel is shown revealing the well that was to save Hagar and Ishmael from dying of thirst in the desert. The feeling in both works is tranquil, as all that is occurring is with God's consent. Not only Isaac, but also Ishmael are to be the founders of a great nation of people.
