FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

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 foundational stories. This is the first book to unite myth-inspired artworks by ancient, modern, and contemporary artists, from Botticelli and Caravaggio to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.
