Eric Gill worked as a sculptor, book illustrator, and typographer. His wood engraving of Eve functions simultaneously as decorative silhouette and three-dimensional form by his subtle use of line. Though highly stylized, this depiction of Eve brims with sexuality, with the emphasis on the figure's breast and buttocks and the placement of the serpent between her legs.Primary Object ClassificationPrintRights
