About the book:

Bulfinch's definitive retelling of Greek and Roman mythology is illustrated for the first time with 100 of the world's most stunning and dramatic masterpieces.
-- The panorama of artists includes Michelangelo, Botticelli, Titian, Poussin, Rubens, and Burne-Jones, among many others.
-- The marriage of classic painter and ancient mythology showcases how Ingres imagined Oedipus solving the riddle of the Sphinx; the terrifying head of the Medusa as painted by Caravaggio; the building of the Trojan Horse by Tiepolo; and countless other visions inspired by myth.
-- Each painting is accompanied by a caption that explores the artist's technique and symbolism and sets the work in a historical context.
-- This new approach to Bulfinch casts his text in a fresh perspective, reflecting how profoundly mythology has affected Western artists, writers, and thinkers and demonstrating how the beautiful, haunting images of the classical world have enriched our culture.
