This scene from the Old Testament book of Exodus has a distinguished provenance reaching back to the illustrious collection of Louis-François Crozat (died 1750) in Paris. In 1909, the work gained further prominence when John G. Johnson lent it as a Rembrandt to the exhibition of Dutch art held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the occasion of New York’s Hudson-Fulton Celebration. This deftly executed painting is now thought to be the work of a talented studio assistant in the workshop of Rembrandt.
