This oil on canvas, crowned with a gilded wood carved frame from the period of an impressive richness and detail, elevates the biblical scene “Jacob’s Dream”: a male figure sleeping and an archangel observing from a cloud over a bush… Soft blue and grey tones indicate the profusion of the dream, and red colours on the clothes of the archangel, the night sky and the message.
