Fall of Icarus

At first sight, the famous painting from the 16th century that used to be attributed to Pieter Breughel the Elder, shows a farmer who plowes his land. On a plot next to him, a shepherd is daydreaming, surrounded by his sheep. A fisherman is fishing on the waterfront. From a distance you can see the city of Athens. At sea there is a boat. But nobody notices the drama that is going on in a dark corner and which refers to the painting’s title.
