-Is an authorative, informative, and easy-to-guide to the mythological, religious, historic, literary, and symbolic traditions which have inspired artists from all ages, and continue to inspire today.

-Includes fascinating feature panels, illustrated with details from great works of art, explaining how to interpret a wide range of artistic themes, from the nine Muses to the Seven Deadly Sins.

-Concludes with a reference list of specific paintings cited or illustrated in the book, with details of the museum or gallery in which they may be seen.
