The Fall of Man is a painting of the fall of man by the Venetian artist Titian, dating to around 1550 and now in the Prado in Madrid. It is influenced by Raphael's Stanza della Signatura in the Vatican and Albrecht Dürer's engraving Adam and Eve. Owned at one point by Antonio Pérez, in 1585 it entered the Spanish royal collection, where it was copied by Rubens between 1628 and 1629 for his own version of the subject.
