Comment
This is the largest and latest of Robetta's three prints representing this subject. The landscape is copied in reverse from Dürer's engraving the Madonna with the Monkey (Bartsch VII.60.42), while the rocky seat of Eve probably derives from Dürer's other engraving of the Penance of St John Chrysostom (Bartsch VII.79.63).
