From the Curators:
"This unique anthology features 11 of today’s leading comic book artists’ and writers’ responses to one of the most important paintings in the Museum, and one of the great paintings in America – Prometheus Bound by Peter Paul Rubens. Just as Rubens drew inspiration from Michelangelo and Titian, Bill Sienkiewicz, Grant Morrison, Dave McKean, David Mack, Yuko Shimizu, and others look to the great art of the past to spur their own creations. In so doing, Prometheus Eternal provides visually dynamic and highly innovative takes on the ancient myth of Prometheus, the immortal Titan who endured horrific punishment for stealing fire from the gods to give humanity the spark of inspiration. Together, the varied contributions offer brilliant, and highly personalized, meditations on the process and rigors of artistic creation."
—Christopher D.M. Atkins, The Agnes and Jack Mulroney Associate Curator of European Painting and Sculpture before 1900
