Title:The Macklin Bible -- Moses
Notes:The Macklin Bible is an enormous physical specimen of book art, comprising seven volumes two feet in height and over 130 pounds in weight. It is the apogee of the art of British copper-plate engraving. Renowned artists often selected scripture texts that featured women, who were the nurturers of religious education for the family in late 18th century England. This powerful image of Moses by Benjamin West presents the Moses written of in the book of Numbers, chapter 21, verses 4-9.

A gift to Vanderbilt University from John J. and Anne Czura.
