Moses Shown The Promised Land (1801)

Met’s Artwork of the Day drills it (to use a term frequently thrown around in Rob Lowe’s autobiography) today:

Benjamin West.

The family later moved to Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, where his father was the proprietor of the Square Tavern, still standing in that town.

So it is!  Regrettably it doesn’t look like you can have a drink there anymore.  LAME.
