Flying Too Close to the Sun
Flying Too Close to the Sun is the first major survey to reveal the ways in which Classical mythology has inspired art throughout the last 2,500 years.
From the films of Woody Allen and the Coen Brothers to Margaret Atwood's books and Arcade Fire's songs, Classical Greek and Roman myths continue to be a source of cultural inspiration. The struggles of heroes, both triumphant and tragic, with gods, monsters, and fate, exert a particular grip on our imagination.
Visual artists have long expressed and reworked these foundation stories and this fully illustrated book unites myth-inspired artworks by ancient, modern, and contemporary artists, from Botticelli and Caravaggio to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.
