Adam and Eve

Václav Levý

Václav Levý - Adam and Eve
Levý made this statue of Adam and Eve after his arrival in Munich. Under the influence of his teacher Schwanthaler his work tended more and more towards the Antique. This extremely simple yet highly effective composition, with the idealized noble and smooth forms of the two figures, is evidence of the artist's rapid transition from Romanticism to academic aesthetics.
