This was painted to illustrate the Bible; in the engraved works of this great master the design will be found. It was originally on Panel, but has been transferred to Canvass. The subject is treated in Raphael's grand style, the person of the Deity is superhuman, those of Adam and Eve, show the artist's anatomical knowledge; in the body of the man every muscle is articulated; whilst in that of the female, there is a softness and roundity of the most delicate texture. [P. 6.]
