Genesis in World Art

I am continuing to read in Genesis with a commentary. While looking up some items of interest, I discovered that Wikipedia has a treasure trove of world art masterpieces that have been digitally scanned and freely available on the internet. So I present some world masterpieces of Genesis (that I've read so far).

Noah's Ark, Französischer Meister ("The French Master"), Magyar Szépművészeti Múzeum, Budapest. c.1675.

"Adam and Eve" by Lucas Cranach the Elder

German Late Medieval (ca. 1370s) depiction of the
construction of the Tower of Babel.

A painting by the American Edward Hicks (1780–1849), showing the animals boarding Noah's Ark two by two.
