The First Mourning ~ A Painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau


The First Mourning (1888) by William Adolphe Bouguereau

Painted in 1888, The First Mourning shows Adam comforting Eve over the body of their son, Abel, who was murdered by his brother, Cain. According to the Bible, this is the first human death. 


The painting below is a modern variation, a “remastering,” of The First Mourning, called Death of a Cyborg. It’s by the artist known as Shorra.
