The Eternal Father Appears to Moses

1577-78
Oil on canvas, 370 x 265 cm
Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice

This and the other two ovals placed at the sides of the canvas portraying Moses Drawing Water from the Rock are iconologically closely connected with it. The moment when God appears to Moses to announce to him the news of the promised land is carried out with meditated Manneristic sharpness.
