    In his search for a wife for his master, Isaac, Eliezer encountered Rebecca, who offered him water from her pitcher by the well. The biblical account offered Murillo the perfect pretext for depicting an everyday scene typical of any Andalusian town square, with four women about to fill their pitchers.
