    10. Adam and Eve. (Dürer.)

    His best plate in point of execution, and in that respect unrivalled. Next to it may be placed the coat of arms with the skull. Execution, remember, is to be estimated by the intrinsic value of every line. That is the best in which every separate line is doing the most work.

  • Ruskin's Standard & Reference series (1872)

    10. Adam and Eve. (Dürer.)

    His best plate in point of execution, and in that respect unrivalled. Next to it may be placed the coat of arms with the skull, Edu. 51 . Execution, remember, is to be estimated by the intrinsic value of every line. That is the best in which every separate line is doing the most and truest work.
