Adam and Eve with Cain and Abel

By 1512
Fra Bartolomeo (Bartolomeo di Paolo), also called Baccio della Porta (Italian (active Florence, Venice, and Rome), 1472–1517)
This painting is unfinished: the artist began to apply light tones over the sepia-colored underpainting but the figure of Adam remains a drawn form without tonal variations.
