Overview

The fourth book in Abrams’ successful series that includes Saints, Angels, and Mary, this volume retells some of the best-known stories in human history, pairing them with compelling renditions in painting, sculpture, and film. Beginning with Adam and Eve, art historians Martina Degl’Innocenti and Stella Marinone bring these tales to life anew with images both familiar and unusual.

Using the work of masters such as da Vinci, Rubens, Blake, and Rembrandt alongside the works of Klimt, Delacroix, and DeMille, the authors guide the reader through nearly a thousand years of art history, examining the way these universal themes have been visualized according to the styles and customs of the time. Packed with more than 275 works of art in full color, this book is a perfect primer in art inspired by the Bible.
