For centuries, Bible stories and ancient Greek and Roman mythology were the main subjects of Western art. Old Masters such as Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, and countless others rendered these stirring, poignant and often erotic tales on panel or canvas. Here, Patrick de Rynck examines over 200 of these works.
