Bruegel in Detail

Bruegel in Detail (Hardback)

By Sellink, Manfred

Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525- 1569), known for his beautiful landscapes and peasant scenes, is among the most popular artists in the history of Netherlandish painting. Reproducing all of Bruegel's best-known paintings, drawings, and prints, this book reveals the...m as never before, in stunning large close-up details that showcase his mastery. Organized by his major themes--landscapes, daily life, biblical subjects, and festive celebrations--it offers astonishing views of popular works of art such as Hunters in the Snow, Peasant Wedding, and The Tower of Babel. The printings and drawings section includes his series on Sins and Virtues. Breugel expert Manfred Sellink reveals how Bruegel introduced new subject matter into fine art and examines his use of landscape, perhaps the artist's greatest innovation.
