When Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gifted it to mankind he brought light to the darkness of mankind’s caves. It earned him the wrath of Zeus, and a reputation as a champion of mankind and the author of the human arts and sciences. The light sparked human creativity, and the cave drawings of animals surely danced in the flames. It was Prometheus’s gift that brought forth the possibilities of art – like the stained glass of Gothic cathedrals, or the illusion of light in Turner’s paintings. As the harnessing of light continued we can see artists capturing an illumination of once dark rooms, or painting streets now lined with gaslight. Color and content evolved with scientific discovery, and our visions of our world have been forever changed.
