No one expresses the revolutionary new attitude to the body better than the German painter Hans Baldung Grien. In these details of three separate paintings, we see a consistent portrayal of Eve as an ever so sensitive and beautiful person. At the tempation (left image), the contrast between her vulnerable flesh and the violence of the devil could not be greater. When Eve seduces Adam (middle image), we are struck by the intimacy between the two, in spite of their eating the forbidden fruit. Baldung also depicts God's promise that Eve will eventually crush the serpent's head under her heel (right image). Now she is seen celebrating her ultimate victory, not dressed in some gown, but displaying all her feminine glorious beauty.
Hans Baldung obviously used real models for his paintings. He appreciated the naked human body. Look at the details of, for instance, the knees, the feet, the nipples and the hair.
