Containing some of the best-known stories of the Old Testament, the Book of Genesis has provided a rich source of inspiration to artists throughout the centuries. from Old Master paintings and frescos to stained glass and illuminations. Paintings include works by Raphael, Rubens, Caravaggio, Bruegel, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, and Tintoretto.
