Joseph Explaining the Dreams of the Baker and the Cupbearer

1500 Expuesto en Sala 7

The Bible tells the story of Joseph’s imprisonment in Egypt, where he explained the dreams of his fellow prisoners. This painting shows Joseph – dressed in red – explaining the dreams of the baker and the pharaoh’s cupbearer. Their dreams appear in thought bubbles above their heads, like in a modern-day comic strip.

The panel was painted by Jan Mostaert, Haarlem’s leading painter in the first half of the sixteenth century.
