schema:reviewBody""Temptation in Eden: Lucas Cranach's 'Adam and Eve' is the catalogue of the first exhibition in Britain devoted to Lucas Cranach the Elder (around 1472-1553). Cranach was one of the greatest and most inventive painters of sixteenth-century Germany, and a personal friend of the Reformation theologian Martin Luther. Both the exhibition and this catalogue are focused around Cranach's Adam and Eve of 1526, one of the most beloved paintings in the Courtauld collections, and a work ideally suited to the artist's outstanding gifts as a portrayer of landscape, animals and the female nude." "Beautiful, beguiling and inventive, Adam and Eve depicts the split-second before mankind's fall from grace, and subsequent expulsion from paradise. This fully illustrated book presents new art historical and conservation research exploring the making and the meaning of this iconic image, and its place in Cranach's artistic production. It also provides a rare introduction to this great German artist in English."--BOOK JACKET."
