The Finding of Moses, Moyses van Wtenbrouck, c. 1625 - c. 1627

olieverf op paneel, h 73.5cm × w 99.5cm. More details

Amid the bathing women, the infant Moses can just be seen, with some effort, being lifted from the rush basket in which he washed ashore. Wtenbrock makes it clear that this biblical story takes place in Egypt: in the foreground is a statue of a sphinx with the head of a dog, and in the background an overgrown obelisk.
