The Fall of Man (Rubens)

Peter Paul Rubens 004.jpg

The Fall of Man, Adam and Eve or Adam and Eve in the earthly paradise is a 1628-1629 painting by Rubens, now in the Prado in Madrid. Once attributed to the minor Dutch artist Karel van Mander,[citation needed] it is now recognised as a work by Rubens.

It is a copy of the painting of the same subject by Titian,[1] seen by Rubens during his 1628-1629 trip to Madrid for peace negotiations to end the Dutch Revolt. It reflects Raphael's influence on Titian and Jan Brueghel the Elder's influence on Rubens, who adds a parrot and changes Adam's posture, musculature, age and expression.[2]
