The Creation of Adam and Eve
About "Limited Edition" Prints
Not like all other prints, which are stretched and shipped out of our San Diego, California, USA fulfillment center. "Limited Edition" prints are not stretched, instead, they are shipped to you, mounted on a matted frame, ready to hang. Moreover, our "Limited Edition" prints have an extra special touch, considering they all feature Vernon Finney's signature. Each is hand titled and numbered, while being limited to 100 prints for each of the featured artworks.
Sketches of Creation
Back in 1954, Vernon had an idea for a painting in which he would reimagine the "Creation of Adam and Eve" with a bit of a twist of nature and physics intertwined. He drew up a few sketches, one would imagine, before coming to create his first study for the painting. The first and second studies were done using Gouache on posterboard. The second study was completed in 1958, building upon the original idea laid forth in the first study.
To some folk, including Luis Rodriguez, Vernon Finney Art's Master Curator, the second study (1958) is the best rendition of the idea. Why? Some of the finer detail of the figures was removed, such as the hair, to make for a concept like others in Vernon lineage, that being hairless nude figures.
Both 1954 amd 1958 studies have been through at least one flood each, hence the shape in which we see the rough shape in which we see the 1958 study being today.
