An attribution to Lucas Vorsterman is plausible. Reversed etching by Vorsterman (BM, W, 2-142). The drawing corresponds with slight differences, and in reverse, with one in the Parma Gallery (510/1).
Original unknown. Reversed etching by Vorsterman (B.M. W. 2-142). The drawing corresponds, with slight differences and in reverse, with one in the Parma Gallery (510/1; Freedberg, fig. 107b). A curious point is the indication under Moses' l. foot of the iron tie with which the arch is reinforced in the church, though its function and perspective have been misunderstood by the draughtsman.
