Moses And The Daughters Of Jethro Tempera On Paper Late 700 Early 800

$ 9,000
  • Description
    Tempera on paper, applied to hardboard.
    The biblical episode depicted, described in the book of Exodus, tells how young Moses, still at the court of the Pharaoh of Egypt, defends the seven young daughters of the priest Jethro, harassed by some Midianite shepherds while they draw water from the well. After his intervention, Moses will receive in marriage one of Jethro's daughters, Zipporah.
    This subject is very popular in art history, it is presented here with a particular attention to the portrait component, with a particular exacerbation of the expressive traits, both in the faces and the poses of the characters. The scene is very lively, with the figure of Moses in the centre, vigorous and combative, who divides the field in two: on his left the seven girls, each characterized by a different behaviour; on the right the importuning shepherds, who suffer the wrath of Moses.
    In the background, a landscape typical of 18th century productions, with an architectural ruin behind the well.
    The work is presented in a frame in style.
