Adam and Eve
From the series Theatrum Pictorum of David Teniers
Coryn Boel, Flemish, 1620 - 1668. After an oil sketch by David Teniers II, Flemish (active Antwerp and Brussels), 1610 - 1690. After a painting by Alessandro Varotari, Italian, 1588 - 1648.
This print is a loose sheet from the Theatrum Pictorium. Alessandro Varotari, who made the painting that Teniers copied for the catalogue, was known at the time as Padovanino after his hometown of Padua. As is the case for many of the images that inspired the plates in the book, the original painting does not survive.
