Luxury Design, Past & Present
A large vintage oil on canvas painting of Adam and Eve signed in the lower right corner by the Dutch artist M. Raemdonck with the date of 1942. Please notice the bold voluptuous manner of the painted subjects with great attention given to the musculature and the relation between the male and female bodies. They are situated in an amorphous space with a mysterious quality provided by the light entering the pictorial space from the left. The paint handling by the artist is excellent to create an elegant representation of the human form. The subject matter is open to interpretation but given the time period may be seen as a new beginning for humanity.
