The author comments upon two works by Giovanni Battista Langetti, which are inspired by the narrative of the Old Testament: Joseph Interpreting Dreams and Isaac Blessing His Son Jacob. On this occasion, in relation with the Biblical narrative, new opinions concerning the identity of the characters in Joseph Interpreting Dreams are advanced. There are presented these works in relations with others with similar subject by the same painter or which could have had an iconographic influence on the painting Isaac Blessing His Son Jacob.
