Exclusive to the British Museum, a print of Lucas Cranach the Elder’s The Fall of Man (c.1500-1515).

This print forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

This print is based on a 16th century German woodcut by Lucas Cranach the Elder, which shows Eve handing an apple to Adam in the Garden of Eden, while the serpent whispers in Eve’s ear. It became common in European art from around the 13th century to portray the serpent as female, which supported the Christian theological tradition which placed the blame for the Fall squarely with Eve, and therefore women in general.

An intriguing piece of home art.
