In Exodus from Egypt Anisfeld turns to the founding myth of Israel, depicting the departure of the Israelites from Ancient Egypt following their delivery from servitude. The narration of the story is unorthodox, as the focus of the painting is on the pursuers, the Egyptian army, the Pharaoh in his chariot and the exotic animals, rather than on the Israelites, the protagonists of the story. The present lot is closely comparable to The Exodus (66 by 108cm), executed shortly before Anisfeld’s emigration to New York in 1917 and exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum the following year.
