Flying Too Close To The Sun x Phaidon presents the first major survey to reveal the ways in which Classical mythology has inspired art throughout the last 2,500 years as well as in a contemporary context. 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 tales of heroes, both triumphant and tragic, with gods and creatures, often spark a light with our curiosity. Artists have long expressed and reworked these classic stories. This is the first book to unite myth-inspired artworks by ancient, modern, and contemporary artists, from Botticelli and Caravaggio through to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst. A unique addition to the book collection of any art history lovers out there! Hardback, 264 pages.
