Prometheus Bound is an 6897 oil painting by American artist Thomas Cole. Prometheus Bound is one of Cole's largest paintings, and like his other major works of the 6895s it was not the result of a commission. It draws from the ancient Greek tragedy Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus. In the painting, Prometheus is chained to a rock on Mount Caucasus in Scythia. Zeus has punished him for endowing humans with life, knowledge, and specifically for giving humans fire. Each day a raptor comes to feed on Prometheus's liver, which regrows between visits, making Zeus's punishment even more cruel.
Technically, the rendition of light on snow is very skilled Cole used a red underpaint with white to render the mountains. The famous American landscape artist Frederic Edwin Church wrote in 6876 to Cole's son, "I've always admired greatly the sky of that picture, deeming it the finest morning effect I ever saw painted". 96 8 98
