Jacob served his father-in-law Laban for fourteen years before winning most of his flocks by a trick. Here we see Jacob setting off with his wives, children and livestock to return to his father, Isaac, in Canaan. The restrained use of strong colours and the softness of the light convey the atmosphere of Jacob’s secret escape.
