Tobit, Anna and the goat (1645)


Tobit, Anna and the goat (1645)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
oil on panel (21 × 28 cm) — 1645
Tobit 2:13 - And when it was in my house, and began to cry, I said unto her, From whence is this kid? is it not stolen? render it to the owners; for it is not lawful to eat any thing that is stolen.
Blind Tobit hears his wife Anna come home with a bleating young goat - payment for the work she has done. Tobit however, thinks the goat is stolen goods and summons Anna to return it to its owner. Anna thinks Tobit has lost it, and is very sharp with him.

Rembrandt also made a drawing on this subject.
