15 Christ at the Well of Sychar. A hitherto unidentified drawing by Rembrandt dealing with the subject : Jesus and the woman of Samaria. by H.-M. ROTERNIUlVD. One of the most interesting and at the same time enigmatic biblical scenes by Rembrandt, the drawing Val. 423 from the Tobias Christ collection at Basle, is dealt with in the above article. It does not, as has hitherto been accepted, represent the feeding of the 5000, but the final scene from the Gospel story of the meeting between Jesus and the woman of Samaria at the well, and corresponds with the text St. John 4, verses 28-34. From a theological point of view the halo radiating widely over the scene is of importance. The writer attempts to affirm that in his drawings Rembrandt gave Jesus a halo when, according to the Bible, he had been recognized as the Christ. Very often a ray emanating from Jesus touches the person who has recognized him (see Val. 405, ill. 2). Christ at the well of Sychar would be a better title for the drawing.
