Notes: Gerdts says in this version, Moses looks out toward the viewer, with the angel behind, and less dramatic than the other version. On the left outer edge of the canvas is 'No 5/Moses on the Mount' (not Weir's writing). Initials 'R W W' appear on back of stretcher. Canvas from Goupil's, 772 Broadway, NY.
