The work is ascribed to a Flemish painter, active in the seventeenth century, and illustrates the episode, taken from the Gospel of John (Jn 4, 1-30), of the dialogue between Christ and a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well, near of the city of Sicar, from which the woman has just drawn water and then placed it in a jug.

The theme (one of the most frequently used in Counter-Reformation Christian art) celebrated the main concepts of the Council of Trent: the encounter with the Samaritan woman has the symbolic meaning of the innovation brought by Christ who offers the good news even to those who are not considered pure Jew. Even the place of the event, rather unusual and certainly not religious, according to biblical tradition, was rich in meanings and historical salvific evocations.

The Gospel episode is reflected in our canvas with an interesting translation both in terms of composition and pictorial quality, finding its culmination in the graceful figure of the Samaritan woman, with her elegant pose, underlined by the skilful drapery of her clothes and her gestures. .

The author broadens the horizon of the scene, showing the glimpse of the city of Sicar, illuminated by the light of the dawn of a new day, and from which the disciples of Christ are returning - in the Gospel account John, Peter and Andrew are named - followed by others and by the inhabitants curious to see the new Messiah in person.

The conservation conditions of the work appear very good.
