Painting in a distinctive sensuous style, Lucas Cranach the Elder (German, 1472–1553) interpreted biblical subjects with humorous insight and flair. 

His striking portrayals of Adam and Eve beneath the Tree of Knowledge are among the highlights of the Norton Simon Museum of Art in Pasadena, California. 

These captivating life-size paintings are presented for the first time at Getty following a multi-year conservation treatment and technical study.​
