Orazio Gentileschi’s 'The Finding of Moses', completed in the early 1630s, is one of our largest and boldest paintings. The dramatic biblical scene provides different perspectives on the importance of Moses’s life for people from many backgrounds and religions. This film reveals its many meanings in relation to the theme of Crossing Borders, our Art and Religion theme for 2021–22, through the eyes of four contributors: a priest, a rabbi, a curator and an artist:

  • The Revd Ninus Khako, Curate at St Alban’s Church, North Harrow
  • Rabbi Dr Deborah Kahn-Harris, Principal, Leo Baeck College
  • Caro Howell, MBE, Director, The Foundling Museum
  • Ali Cherri, National Gallery Artist in Residence 2021
