"The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Eden" in 1426-28 (restored in 1980) by Masaccio (San Giovani Valdarno 1401 - Rome 1428). Fresco (208x88cm). Cappella Brancacci, Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence. It depicts the expulsion from the biblical Book of Genesis chapter 3, with a few differences. Masaccio's revolutionary use of perspective and movement, his narrative drama and the tragic realism of his figures placed him in the vanguard of Renaissance painting.
