More than a hundred works of the best contemporary artists inspired by the eternal story of Adam and Eve’s creation of man and woman, the eternal drama titled “He and She.”

About

The legendary ancestors of the human race, driven out of the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve – the images so exciting the imagination of any creator that their image of old plot was not only the iconographic, but also secular painting. After all, to portray the most perfect creation – the problem is so attractive to the artist that this story, interpreted in some way, inspired many famous painters. Michelangelo and Titian, Dürer and Cranach the Elder, Rubens and Veronese – an infinite number of images of textbook story about a man, a woman and an apple seemingly long had run out of fantasy artists.

However, even in our days, this story continues to haunt the imagination of artists and sculptors. After all, he has long gone beyond the scope of uzkoreligioznye and is considered much more – as the story of the first man and woman on earth, their fall and expulsion from paradise – as the triumph and tragedy of sexuality in general.
