Joseph tells his dreams to Jacob (1512)

Joseph tells his dreams to Jacob (1512)
Lucas van Leyden 1494 – 1533
engraving (126 × 165 mm) — 1512
Genesis 37:10 - And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
Joseph had dreamed that he and his brothers were working in the field and that his brothers' sheaves bowed for his sheaf. After that, he dreamed that the sun, the moon and eleven stars also bowed for him. Joseph here tells his dreams to his father Jacob. His mother Rachel and brothers are also listening.

To the left Lucas van Leyden shows the moment Joseph enters the room.
