The painting “Fall of Man” by the Venetian artist Titian (1488-1576) tells the story of Adam and Eve.
The painting dates back to around 1550 and is now exhibited in the Prado National Museum in Madrid.
In the painting, you can see a faithful visualisation of Genesis 30, 9-19. Here Eve is blamed for accepting the forbidden fruit. Even though we do not know the type of this fruit because it is not stated in Genesis, Titian follows the tradition of depicting an apple.
In the painting, we see that the seated Adam and standing Eve are using the leaves of a fig tree to cover their nakedness.
Additionally, there is an obvious emphasis on some iconographic elements. There is, for example a fox, traditionally associated with the devil.
And you can also see a child-serpent offering the apple to Eve.
What makes this painting particularly charming is the combination of blue, dark green and broken red.
