Description

This work by French sculptor Albert Bartholomé was acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria with funds from the Felton Bequest in 1922. It is a bronze sculpture depicting the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise. It has been dated to 1905, although the work from which it was cast was probably finished by 1899. The figures of Adam and Eve are believed to be modelled on Masaccio’s fresco, Expulsion from Paradise, (c.1426-1428) in the Brancacci Chapel, Florence (See Ted Gott et al, 19th Century Painting and Sculpture in the International Collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, National Gallery of Victoria, 2003, p.112).
