The Woman Of Samaria

 One last painting today from the Baroque Room. This is Christ And The Woman Of Samaria, by Guercino, dating to 1647.

Emerging back into the main path of the galleries, I took in this one. Giovan Antonio Caravaggi is a portrait by Giovanni Cariani, dating circa 1520-30.

Daniele Barbaro is the title of this 1545 portrait by Titian.

Alessandro Vittoria created this terracotta sculpture between 1570-76. It is titled Giulio Contarini.

Portrait Of A Young Lady is the title of this painting by Bartolomeo Veneto, done circa 1520-30.

Francisco Salviati painted The Virgin And Child With An Angel, circa 1535-39.


  1. The Baroque Room definitely deserves a visit.

  2. The statue is my fav. So finely done.

  3. It is amazing the talent some people have.

  4. The woman at the well with Jesus! I love that story.

  5. Beautiful paintings and sculpture! Take care, have a happy new week!

  6. ...religion has been an important part of art through the ages.

  7. @Italiafinlandia: very much so.

    @Iris: that it is.

    @David: true!

    @Sandi: good story.

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @Tom: it certainly has.

  8. I don’t find biblical paintings very inspiring. BTW on the thumbnail version of the first photo, I thought Jesus might be smoking. 😀

  9. The terracotta sculpture is beautiful.

  10. The expressions in all the paintings are so beautiful.

  11. The terra cotta sculpture is my favourite of these. It looks to be in wonderful condition.

  12. I wouldn't mind having one of those in my house.

  13. I wonder who the young lady is.

  14. Those clothes must have been unbearably hot in summer.

  15. The Veneto and the terracotta sculpture get my vote today!

  16. I like the portrait of the young girl. I hope she got what she wanted.

  17. I also like the portrait of a young lady, they all looked so serious back then.

  18. I like the Portrait Of A Young Lady.

  19. i love the colors they did you. the beard is amazing. i wonder ...i do ask my brother when he has a beard, he usually will start one at his birthday which is the 30th of August and grow through over the ending of the year ...when it gets on his nerves, he will cut it off. he is bare on the top (so i think it is fun for him) at one time he had lots of red mom never got how he got that ...we don't have red in our close family ...guess it was passed down somehow??! take care this week. and thank you kindly for the visits and comments. you are awesome!!

  21. @Anvilcloud: I can relate. However, of the many religious paintings in the gallery's collection, that particular first one is my favourite.

    @Jan: it certainly is a work of art.

    @Magiceye: I think so too.

    @RedPat: as I recall, it's had some extensive conservation work done, as well as research about its background.

    @Catarina: me neither, but where would they fit?

    @Sharon: a question lost to history.

    @Marie: they would have been.

  22. @Jeanie: thank you.

    @Eve: thanks.

    @Joanne: indeed.

    @Amy: yes, they did.

    @Gemel: she seems popular.

    @Beth: I keep my beard very closely trimmed. Some weeks I just shave it all off.

    @Carol: thank you.
