Angelo Alessandri (1854-1931): Study of Adam and Eve from "The Paradise" after Tintoretto (1883).
Ruskin considered Tintoretto's "Paradiso" (or “The Paradise”) "the most precious thing Venice possesses" and the greatest work Tintoretto ever created. It is over 10 metres tall and 25 metres wide and covers an entire wall of the council chamber in the Doge's Palace. This painting depicts only a detail.
