Christ is seated to the right of a stone well, turned in profile to the left, speaking to a woman who stands beyond. The woman leans on the well and her water-jar, looking pensively downwards. Behind are other figures and buildings on a hill. Taken from John, IV: 7–26, this drawing depicts the scene in which Christ rests near Jacob’s well and asks a Samaritan woman for water. He proclaims, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst.
