About the Edition

Known largely for his sweeping landscapes and depictions of rowdy peasant life, Renaissance artist Pieter Bruegel was first recognized for his odd, often comic, allegorical engravings. In fact, his paintings only became known after his death. This biography charts Bruegel"s life from his apprenticeship in Brussels and steady work for an Antwerp printer to his renowned landscapes, paintings of peasants, and religious-themed surreal phase. Generously illustrated with examples of Bruegel"s work, readers will understand how his legacy inspired so many great artists and filmmakers that followed.
