Isaac Blessing Jacob Govert Flinck (1615-1660), oil on canvas, c 1638. The Bible recounts how Jacob, pretending to be his brother Esau, tricked their blind father into bestowing Esau's rightful blessing on him. The idea of limiting Esau's hirsute arms by wearing animal-skin gloves came from their mother Rebecca, who looks on from behind the bed.
