Joseph, the Cupbearer and the Baker in Prison by Dutch School

12,000.00

In this 17th century Dutch oil painting, Joseph, in the prison of Egyptian official Potiphar after a false accusation was laid against him, can be seen listening to the vivid and puzzling dreams of Poitphar's Cupbearer and Baker, who have also been imprisoned. Captured in this moment is the kindness and dignity Joseph displays as he interprets the men's dreams, specifically the Baker's, as noted by the loaf of bread placed beside him, as he recounts his dream of the baskets of bread for his master that sit upon his head, and from which birds are eating.


42H x 38 W inches

Note:  
This work was previously attributed to Paulus Bor (Dutch, 1601-1669) at auctions in Amsterdam on 25-28 November 1970 and 10 May 1971, according to information obtained from the Netherlands Institute for Art History.
