Although the poses of these figures are similar to those of Adam and Eve in representations of the Fall of Man, this picture of around 1906 does not have a narrative subject. It is probably inspired by French nude compositions of the turn of the nineteenth century by such artists as Cèzanne and Puvis de Chavannes.
