| Adam and Eve
15 1/4" wide and 11 3/4", 17 3/4", and 21 1/4" long.
|This light-hearted piece rejects the notion of Eve as the temptress.
The first window shows a serpent in a tree overlooking the scene.
The second, showing Adam and Eve, is a take-off on the 1526 German painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder.
Rather than handing Adam an apple, she is handing him (back) a rib.
The final window shows the freed Eve in a swirl of colour with the silhouette of a Folies-Bergère dancer. |
