John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, Eve Tempted A lovely illustration of the power of persuasive speech. The personified snake is whispering to Eve and she certainly seems to be giving his words some serious thought.
I love the honesty in this painting. Gustav Klimt: Three Ages of Women, Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body; his works are marked by a frank eroticism.
