Description

The scene illustrates the escape of Lot and his two daughters from the burning cities (Genesis 19: 9). The tiny figure of Lot's wife, turned to salt, is visible in the centre. A similar composition is found in the centre of a painting by Patenir belonging to the Dienst voor's Rijksverspreide Kunstvoorwerpen in The Hague. The Oxford painting may be a copy by Patenir himself or by a close associate. There is an old attribution on the back to Patenir's nephew, Herri de Patenir, written in Italian.
