Cain and Abel

William-Adolphe Bouguereau   -  
The First Mourning
Adam and Eve mourn over their son Abel’s death: Abel’s body lies on Adam’s knees, while Eve covers her face with her hands and weeps in Adam’s embrace. Adam puts his hand on his heart, expressing his unbearable pain. The dark clouds in the background intensify the tragedy of the scene.
