Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, currently at the Tate

The Garden of Eden is here reinstated as a horticultural fantasy, defined by its relationship with an unseen domestic interior. Mahoney's image of perfection glimpsed from a window was created in the mid-1930s, when the idea of the garden was actually an accomplice of suburbanisation. Gallery label, May 2003
Exhibited: 1936
