Footed Dish with Moses Destroying the Tablets of the Law


Description Provenance Credit
Description The composition on the interior of this footed dish was derived from Bernard Salomon's woodcuts for Claude Paradin's "Quadrins historique de la Bible" (Lyons, 1553), a popular source for biblical compositions. The cover is missing. The monogram at the right edge identifies this as the work of the enamellist Jean de Court, about whom little is known outside of his enamels.
Provenance Paris; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1925 [mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1925
