The Sacrifice of Isaac

Jacob Jordaens

This picture, purchased from the painter’s heirs in The Hague in 1734, was transferred to the
Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam, where it was requisitioned by the French as a Rubens and taken to the Louvre. It came to the Brera as part of an exchange, and was correctly identified here as a work by Jordaens. There is some dispute over its date, but the artist’s use of sober blues and browns, akin to those used in other works of the period, suggests that it is likely to have been painted in 1625 or 1626.
