The Trials of Moses, also known as The Youth of Moses or Scenes from the Life of Moses, is a breathtaking 348 x 558 cm (11 x 18 ft) fresco by the painter Sandro Botticelli. The painter was summoned by Pope Sixtus IV, who called the best of the Florentine painters to make the ambitious project of the Sistine Chapel. Most of Botticelli’s frescoes remain untouched, but they are overshadowed by the great works left by Michelangelo, which occupy the most extensive parts of the interior. Botticelli was specifically called to paint this work as remediation between the Medici family and the papacy.
The Trials of Moses was painted in an enormous area of the interiors. Botticelli made three frescoes in the Chapel: The Trials of Moses, Temptations of Christ, and Punishment of the Sons of Korah. Botticelli also made imagined portraits and other works either changed in the Chapel or left for the Vatican’s collection. Since the panel was done in such a large area, Botticelli obviously didn’t work alone but employed a big team of assistants. As a result, the composition is big and full of details, scenes, and figures, which is rare in most of Botticelli’s work, usually more elegant and direct.
The Trials of Moses was based on four different scenes found in the Exodus. Botticelli united four other times to narrate Moses’ life in one single scene. On the bottom right, wearing a yellow tunic and green cape, Moses is shown attacking and killing an Egyptian man harassing Hebrews. Moses is seen running to the desert on the upper section of this part, going through a geometrical road.
Right to its left, Moses fights shepherds that are preventing some women from watering their herd. In the next episode, on the upper left of the picture, Moses takes his shoes off close to the river banks, sitting next to some sheep. He then appears again with his yellow tunic, greeting God, represented as an older man on a tree, giving him the mission of freeing the Hebrews from Egypt. Last but not least, a long line of people is seen walking through two giant rock columns. They are the Jewish people leaving Egypt, guided by Moses.
