Description : Mosè fa scaturire l'acqua dalla roccia

Oil painting on canvas. Italian school of the seventeenth-eighteenth century. The great scene depicts a biblical episode taken from the book of Exodus: while Moses is leading the people of Israel, freed from slavery from Egypt, in the desert to the Promised Land, his people are complaining of thirst; he then turns to God asking for advice, and receives the order to go to a mountain and hit a rock with his rod, from which all the necessary water gushes miraculously. In the scene the miracle has already occurred: Moses is on the left, with the rod in his hand, and followed by his faithful brother Aaron, while the whole field is occupied by several women who run with jugs to draw the miraculous water that flows to their feet. The painting, on the first canvas, is presented in an adapted frame from the end of the 19th century.

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
