Containing some of the best-known stories of the Old Testament, the Book of Genesis has provided a rich source of inspiration to artists throughout the centuries from Old Master paintings and frescos to stained glass and illuminations. Paintings include works by Raphael, Rubens, Caravaggio, Bruegel, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, and Tintoretto.
Genesis includes a wealth of favorite biblical stories: the account of the creation, of Adam and Eve, and their expulsion from Eden; the story of Cain slaying Abel, and of Noah's ark and the great flood; the fate of the Tower of Babel, and the stories of Abraham, Sarah, and their son Isaac; the account of the destruction of Sodom, and how Lot's wife became a pillar of salt; the original Jacob's Ladder, and the much-loved tale of Joseph and his "coat of many colors."
