The great revival of ancient Greek and Roman myths that took place in the Renaissance provided artists, between the 15th and 19th centuries, with exciting new subjects. Michael Jacobs, tracing the rise of mythological painting, describes how painters interpreted ancient legends; the subtle ways in which myths were adapted to particular requirements; and the development of the adventurous styles which the themes demanded. The authoritative text takes into account new research in art history. Over 100 full-color illustrations are complemented by tinted information panels providing specific reference to each major painting, its background and critical interpretations.
