Lot No. 21


School of Leiden, circa 1530


Jesus and the Samaritan Woman at the Well,
oil on panel, 36 x 41.5 cm, framed

Provenance:
Collection of Gerhard Freiherr von Pölnitz (1897–1962), Castle Aschbach and Munich;
sale, Lempertz, Cologne, 11 November 1961, lot 86 (as Lucas van Leyden);
Private collection, Germany

The present picture was attributed to Lucas van Leyden by Alfred Stange (written communication, 29 October 1957, in copy).

M. J. Friedländer confirmed the attribution to Lucas van Leyden and suggested an execution date of around 1520 (written communication, 22 November 1957, in copy).

The present panel may have been part of a larger altarpiece, and repeats a subject found in Netherlandish painting of the first half of the sixteenth century, as may been seen in Jan Joest’s 1508 Kalkar Altarpiece, and Dirk Vellert’s print of 1523, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (inv. no. RP-P-H-Z-225).

Peter van den Brink suggests the work may be a version by a Netherlandish artist after a lost Lucas van Leyden original, with an execution date of circa 1530.
