Masaccio The Expulsion Of Adam and Eve from Eden (1426-28) fresco in Florence, before and after restoration.

The fig leaves were added three centuries after the original fresco was painted, probably at the request of Cosimo III de' Medici in the late 17th century, who saw nudity as disgusting. During restoration in the 1980s the fig leaves were removed along with centuries of grime to restore the fresco to its original condition.
