Hagar, Abraham’s second wife, and their son, Ishmael, were forced into the wilderness by the jealousy of the first wife, Sarah. Ishmael was about to expire when an angel appeared, directed Hagar to a spring, and foretold the nation to come from both Isaac and Ishmael’s sons. The drawing renders Hagar in profile, first on the left, then on the right, as in the painting. Ishmael lies at the base of the composition, but reversed from his eventual direction. Above, the angel gestures, only from a more frontal posture and more emphatically than in the painting. Very few such studies by Tiepolo, so quick, unselfconscious, and essential, have been identified.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, The Suida-Manning Collection, 2017", "Copyright_Type" : "Public domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "drawing", "Creation_Place2" : "Italian", "Department" : "Prints and Drawings", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.1392.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.1392.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.1392.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.1392.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "6454", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
