  Artwork: Messianic era, The: Israel and the Law
  Artist: SARGENT, John Singer
  Date: C. 1903-09
  Technique: Oil on canvas
  Location: Royal Academy of Arts, London
  Notes: In "Israel and the Law" Sargent reworked the conventional iconography of the lawgiving on Mount Sinai. In Sargent's rendering, the recipient of the Law is not Moses but the child Israel, and the action in the image is not the solemn handing over of stone tablets but an intimate moment in which God is engaged in teaching the child from a scroll.
