In this work we can admire the biblical scene of Hagar who, to avoid seeing her son die of starvation, initially decides to abandon him but subsequently an angel appears to her to show her a well of water where she can refresh herself and thus save her son Ishmael . The freshness of the lines and the intense compositional intelligence played on precise balances confirm the critics' attribution to Felice Torelli, an artist destined to become one of the most important exponents of the Bologna artistic panorama of the eighteenth century.
