Well, she is gorgeous.  One sympathizes with Adam.  Might well be worth losing Eden for.

The whole picture shows Eve in full frontal nudity. It's a little bit Miltonic in that "Shee as a vail down to the slender waste / Her unadorned golden tresses wore / Disheveld"--also in that it implies the emotional subjection that Adam confesses and Raphael warns against.
I don't recall any other blondes in the Klimt oeuvre.
