One of Gustav Klimt’s final artworks, “Adam and Eve” is unfinished due to Klimt’s sudden death on February 6, 1918. Biblical themes were rare for Klimt, and while “Adam and Eve” does show the artist’s prioritization of the female form, Eve is blond — a departure from his typical dark-haired muses. The unmarked 173 x 60 cm painting was painted in oil on canvas, and now hangs in the Belvedere in Vienna.
