The article is an analysis of a painting by Nicolas Poussin, Eliezer and Rebecca at the well, 1648, stating the interrelation between subjective, aesthetic, and performative aspects in interpretation of visual art. In contrast to interpretations focused on subject matter or theme of ideas this analysis goes further considering how the scene is installed in the address to the beholder and in the grouping of figures and in juxtapositions of elements and colours.
