Sacrifice of Noah

After a woodcut by Bernard Salomon French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 544

Having exited the ark with his family and the animals he has rescued, Noah offers sacrifices to God, who promises never to send another flood (Genesis 8:20–22). As suggested by the compositional style and the palette of bold ochers and blues, the plate may have been the work of an Italian maiolica painter active in France. The scene was adapted from a woodcut by Bernard Salomon (ca. 1508?–ca. 1561) for a Bible published in Lyon in 1553.
