A powerful work by Peter Paul Rubens, depicting the celestial chaos unleashed by Phaeton when his father, Apollo, consented to lend him the reins of the Chariot of the Sun. Unable to control the horses, he careened through the heavens, haphazardly scorching and freezing the earth. From the left of the composition, the butterfly-winged goddesses of the seasons, the Horae, look on in panic—but Jupiter's thunderbolt will soon strike Phaeton and put an end to the debacle. In the 17th century, Phaeton's legend was read as a parable on the dangers of youthful hubris, particularly where others may share in the consequences.
