The Departure of Hagar and Ishmael
oil on canvas

The present work appears to be derived from an illustration for Die Bibel in Bildern (Plate 27) engraved by Steinbrecher (fig. 1) after a drawing by the Nazarene painter Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld. A version of the plate was published for the first time in the Art Journal in 1851.
