THE CHILDREN OF THE BIBLE IN ART. In an interesting survey of modern pictures representing the Children of the Bible, which is accompanied by no fewer than five finely printed coloured plates and seventeen black and white reproductions in the handsome Christmas double number of the Windsor Magazine, the writer says in considering the pictures dealing with the children of Adam and Eve :—" It is, perhaps, somewhat curious that any attempt to present pictures of the more youthful characters of the Old Testament in chronological order finds but few modern artists inspired by the first children named in the Biblical narrative, Cain and Abel, the children of Adam and Eve. In Raphael's pictures of the Creation in the Loggia of the Vatican we find the first children of the Book of Genesis, at the ages of about four and five, at the knees of Eve, who sits spinning under some roughly made shelter, whilst. Adam digs the ground at some distance from the group. But Michel Angelo, Luini, Raphael of Urbino, and others of the Old Masters were all more interested in the wonders of the Creation, and then with the fall of Adam and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, than in their later life of toil and parenthood in banishment."
