Painter, illustrator, graphic artist, cartoonist and costume designer Adolf Born was famous for his inimitable style and work that combined his unique sense of humor with details drawn from the artist's limitless imagination. This work is no different. Adam and Eve, as naked as in the day of creation, ride in the garden on a colorful pink cat, which does not show elegant cat-like curves, but on the contrary seems somewhat massive and clumsy. Fish, in the meantime, float around the air. At one moment, the author masterfully forces us to smile and at the same time think about the many stories that take place in this single drawing. Proof of acquisition from the exhibition in 1990s enclosed.
