CORNELIS VAN HAARLEM
(b. 1562, Haarlem, d. 1638, Haarlem)
The Fall of Man1592
Oil on canvas, 273 x 220 cm
Cornelis van Haarlem completed this painting in 1592 for the Prinsenhof in Haarlem, the stadholder's quarter in the city. Dürer's engraving served as a model for the composition, but Cornelis modified those idealised figures to make them fit the taste of his own day.
