Pharaoh had ordered that all first-born Hebrew sons be killed and to avoid this fate, the baby Moses was placed in a rush basket in the river Nile, where he was rescued and brought before Pharaoh's daughter (Exodus 2: 3–10). This painting and 'The Trial of Moses' (also from the studio of Bonifazio de' Pitati), in their subjects, dimensions and handling, seem to be companion pieces, perhaps 'cassone' panels.
