Question
Hi,

I saw a painting of the god Zeus in a chariot that was being pulled by the winged horse Pegasus.  Zeus isn't wearing a shirt and the painting is in color.

Now it's driving me crazy I don't know who the painter is and I want to order this painting.

Do you know what painting I'm talking about and who the painter is ?

Thanks.

         Jeff

Answer
Hi Jeff

I think the painting you have seen is the "The Fall of Phaeton" by Peter Paul Rubens. There is a picture here:

However many other artists painted this scene incl. Sebastiano Ricci and Johann Liss.

If the link is not showing you the correct one - write me again I will look deeper into it.

Best Regards, Soren
