Abstract

The three paintings in this triptych are the most wonderfully imaginative and enigmatic series of exotic scenes ever depicted in the history of art. Endlessly provocative, almost like some pictorial and philosophical puzzle, the subject matter defies categorization and resists definition altogether. The left panel shows Eve in the Garden of Eden and the right shows the terrors of hell. The center panel is just bewildering beyond description.
