Antique 19th C Century LISTED LARGE French Print Engraving ADAM After the Fall Signed POWERFUL!!

From a mid 19th Century French edition of "Paradise Lost", a large and spectacular engraving by Flatters, called "Adam After the Sin".

Flatters is a listed German artist and was a real star in the 19th Century. He was already working internationally, and his fame encompassed several European countries: France, Germany and Great Britain.

This luxury book was sold on subscription, and the English text was translated into French by no less than Chateaubriand.

Flatters' scenes were an absolute sensation at the time.

These large, visually sharp, steel engravings have not aged at all, and are still as vivid and spectacular today.

I try to always have at least one example of Flatters' Art in my store, ( "Adam", "Satan's Forges", "Eve", "Angels in the Tar Lake", "Satan diving into the Styx", etc.) as I find this artist simply amazing.

Adam is sitting in a Paradise which has already mutated into a kind of Black Forest. He holds his head in his hands as he is weeping. his powerful body, strikingly white against the dark background.

Animals are already preying on animals, with a lamb carried away by an eagle.

The atmosphere is both realistic and symbolic, and Adam's most handsome nude in the dark forest, really unforgettable!

This superb antique artwork will bring elegance and prestige to any decor.

Signed Flatters in the plate.

You may want to check "EVE", Rubylane # 1911pnt from the same publication Both scenes have exactly the same size (only margins are slightly different) and make a fantastic pair! (See last Pic)

(Price for the pair would be less. Please inquire)

MEASUREMENTS: Length: 16". Width: 12".

(41 cm) by (31 cm)

CONDITION: In VERY good condition for its age, with hardly any foxing. Paper still very white. Tiny, well fixed, tear in the bottom margin. hardly visible. Slight wear to upper right corner.

Will be shipped Registered Airmail (very safe!) from Paris, under thick layers of cardboard, including insurance and signature at delivery.
