Phaidon's Flying Too Close To The Sun 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!
