Gathering of Manna, Oil on Canvas, 17th Century



Jews in the desert collecting the Manna. Oil on canvas, XVII century. Oil on canvas arranged horizontally in which a figurative theme is shown with a mountainous landscape in the background. In the foreground, a series of figures have been placed creating various planes and highlighting with their postures and gestures the two figures in the center; a little further to the bottom, to the right, there are some tents and a series of "cut out" figures. Note the presence of vases and other containers, decorated and with forms of clear classicist influence. The iconographic series of Moses (Exodus) has a large number of themes, and one of them is that of the fall and collection of Manna in the desert, which should take place before the sun melted this food that God gave to the Jews six days a week. Stylistically, note the anatomical study of the figures with their backs in the foreground, with which a space is created prior to the "protagonist" Moses, situated raising his hand and looking up at the sky, and the variety of positions and the care of the composition, which results in a very clear work despite the number of figures present in it. · Size: 208 x 6 x 154 cms. Weight is merely orientative.
