In this mural Troughton has adapted Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld's interpretation of the scene, as used in his illustrated Bible Die Bibel in Bildern, published 1852-60. In turn, Schnorr von Carolsfeld was probably influenced by Masaccio's celebrated freso in the Brancacci Chapel, Florence, of about 1424-8.
