Franz von Stuck, Adam and Eve


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    What a fascinating mixture of color used on the snake. I, also, noticed that Eve’s hair is the same color as the apple…it seems (to me) that von Stuck was making quite a strong statement about women! Love it for its intense emotion.

    Yes, good observation on the flaming red hair, Ginene! Definitely a work from the age of belief in the femme fatale.

  3. Good choice. I like the visual conception of consequence attached to choice.
