Lilith (1892) by John Collier
Lilith was said to be the wife that Adam had before Eve; she is a figure of terror, feared as a demon or vampire, and a night monster. She is also known as Lamia; Keats describes her as a serpent which assumed the shape of a beautiful woman ‘palpitating snake … of dazzling hue, vermillion spotted, golden, green and blue’, and it is this image which seems to have captured Collier’s imagination.
