Christ and the Samaritan Woman

Annibale Carracci

Francesco Sampieri, a resident of Bologna who had fallen on hard times, sold the family picture gallery in 1811. The seven masterpieces that were the pride of the collection were bought by the Kingdom of Italy’s interior minister for the Brera. This picture, together with Agostino’s Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery and Ludovico’s Christ and the Canaanite Woman, belonged to a small series commissioned by Abbot Astorre Sampieri. Annibale painted the picture before going to Rome in 1595.
