Worked almost entirely in mezzotint, this engraving exemplifies Martin’s ideal landscape—an unspoiled grove surrounded by thickets of trees and crowned with sublime mountains. Adam bids Eve to his side announcing: ". . . behold Eastward among those trees, what glorious shape Comes this way moving; seems another morn Risen on mid-noon; . . ." Not knowing the reason for the angel Raphael’s approach, the couple acknowledge his arrival, their gesture echoed by the Tree of Knowledge behind them.
