The Temptation and Fall of Eve

Title

The Temptation and Fall of Eve

Description

This painting by William Blake, painted in 1808, depicts Satan as a serpent tempting Eve into eating the fruit from the tree of life. This is an important aspect of the story of the Fall of Man, from Chapter 3 of Genesis, where the serpent tempts Eve, who then in turn tempts Adam. This results in man's banishment from the Garden of Eden, sin and death enter the world, and women now must bear children in pain.
