The Garden of Eden

The Garden of Eden is one of the most symbolically-laden themes in Christian art

The Garden of Eden is one of the most symbolically-laden themes in Christian art, the fruition of creation and the emblem of humanity in a state of innocence. It is also the setting for the drama of temptation and sin, yet in art it can be an invitation to naturalism – one of the subjects that encouraged the development of landscape painting and acute observation of animals and vegetation. It also demands the depiction of the nude, even in periods when this was unusual in western art. This talk is a walk through the Garden, looking at the problems the subject presents and the inventive attitudes it has provoked in examples from the early mediaeval to the modern cartoon.
