Innocenzo Fraccaroli (1805-1882), in the field of sculpture, is an emblematic figure of 19th-century Verona and among the most representative of local art of this period. He was a highly gifted artist who tended to be conservative and fully identified with the teachings of the 19th-century academy. The marble sculpture "Eve Before Sin" depicts Eve as a young teenager, sitting on a cut log with the fruit of sin in her hand, while the biblical serpent slithers at her feet. Here Innocenzo Fraccaroli blends the typically academic lesson with updating to neoclassical models represented by the fashionable hairstyle and greater naturalism of the figure.
