Abraham's servant Eliezer was sent to the city of Nahor in Mesopotamia to find a wife for Abraham's son, Isaac. He encountered Rebekah outside the city as she was carrying water from the well (seen on the right), and asked if he could drink a little. Rebekah returned with Eliezer, married Isaac, and was the mother of Esau and Jacob. Old Testament (Genesis 24: 11­17).

Rebekah and Eliezer at the Well is typical of van den Eeckhout's mature style as a history painter. A drawing for Rebekah and Eliezer at the Well is in the De Grez collection (Brussels, Muses Royaux des Beaux-Arts).

Collection of J.A. Versijden van Varick by 1791; presented by Herman Shickman, in gratitude for the hospitality shown to his mother, a refugee from Germany, by the British people during the Second World War, 1991.
