The Finding of Moses, 1904.

The Finding of Moses, 1904, oil on canvas, 137.7 x 213.4 cm, private collection. It includes a number of archaeologically precise objects and inscriptions, the results of Tadema's diligent research. After two years working on the painting, his wife pointed out that the infant Moses was now a toddler, and needed no longer be carried!

    This is curious!
    The book by Russell Ash on LAT that includes this painting has it printed with the procession going to the LEFT !
    I wonder which way he actually painted it!?

    either way,, it is fabulous !!
