|The Serpent Chooses Adam and Eve|
The Serpent Chooses Adam and Eve is an oil/mirror collage laid on canvas created by George Cohen in 1958.
This key work caused "something of a sensation" at the 1958 Carnegie Invitational. Cohen combined deliberately clumsy, pictographic painting with collage, pasting in a round mirror and a hank of Eve's hair. Mirrors, he explains, "are the supreme illusion; they mock both the viewer and the painting."
