In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Mariana Salem, assistant director of Special Programming and Events, takes a close look at José Dolores López’s Adam and Eve and the Serpent (c. 1930) and sees the artist’s frustration and excitement in the tiniest details.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
