An affordable compact edition of the major monograph that offers new insights into the life and work of this astonishing creative genius. Often Bruegel's subjects are traditional: stories from the Bible and mythology, scenes of country life, and cycles of the seasons. But among the multitude of people within them are mysterious figures, enigmatic incidents, and demonic faces. The meaning of these remarkable paintings continues to intrigue us today, more than four centuries after the artist's death. An art historian and a painting conservator and restorer, each of the authors bring their special expertise to bear on the many questions that still remain about Bruegel's life and his intellectual outlook. Richly illustrated, this important book reveals much new information about one of the most intriguing figures of Renaissance art. Extensive notes, a chronology, bibliography, and a list of Bruegel's exhibitions and catalogues complete the work. It will be an indispensable addition to the librairies of scholars, students, and the many lovers of Bruegel's paintings.
