The exhibition “The Wrath of the Gods” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is made up of masterpieces by Peter Paul Rubens and the 16th-century artists who inspired him, including Michelangelo and Titian. But alongside those works of art is the most surprising element in the show: an original comic book, commissioned by the museum.

A spectacular exhibit opened Saturday at the Philadelphia Art Museum, inspired by one of the finest works by Peter Paul Rubens.

It’s called “The Wrath of the Gods: Masterpieces by Rubens, Michelangelo, and Titian.”

Rubens’ “Prometheus Bound” is the focal point of the exhibit, but it also includes similar pieces, inspired by the Prometheus myth, and how he was tortured eternally for giving humanity the gift of fire. Chris Atkins is Associate Curator at the Art Museum.
