Eugene Delaplanche's sculpture "Eve après le péché" is a representation of Eve after she has sinned in the Garden of Eden according to the biblical story. Eve is represented here naked, seated, the body describing a larges. Her bent limbs (her clenched feet) express remorse. She hides her face, but her eyes are filled with terror. The work captures the moment of realization and guilt experienced by Eve after eating the forbidden fruit.
"Eve après le péché" enjoyed great iconographic fortune in the second half of the 19th century. Because it made it possible to stage female nudes, imbued with sensuality, even eroticism - a form of art of which the bourgeois clientele was particularly fond. By its ample forms, its powerful pace it testifies to the influence of the Rebirth, more precisely of MICHEL-ANGE but in a softened version. This Eve is one of the first nudes truly delivered from ancien treminiscences of classical norms.


Eugène Delaplanche (1836-1891) was a French sculptor. He was a pupil of Duret, gained the Prix de Rome in 1864 (spending 1864–67 at the Villa Medici in Rome), and the medal of honor in 1878. His "Messenger of Love" (1874), "Aurora" (1878), and the "Virgin of the Lillies" (1884), are in the Luxembourg.
