Book Description
Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1528/30-1569) is one of the most popular artists in the history of Western art. Famous for having elevated the status of landscape painting until it became a virtually independent genre, he is also considered to be the greatest 16th century Flemish master of scenes from ordinary life.

Shown in full colour, both in their entirety and in close-up detail, are twelve world-famous masterpieces: The Tower of Babel, Peasant Wedding, Peasant Dance, Hunters in the Snow, Children's Games, The Fight between Carnival and Lent.

From Publishers Weekly
Although he painted landscapes, biblical events and even scenes of otherworldly debauchery reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch, 16th-century Flemish painter Bruegel is probably best known for his scenes of peasant farmers laboring in the fields. Today, these masterpieces of Renaissance art are scattered around the world, from Vienna to New Jersey. The Roberts-Joneses (Philippe is a University of Brussels art history professor and Françoise specializes in restoring early Netherlandish paintings) have collected dozens of Bruegel's works (only about 40 paintings and 40 drawings survive, plus some 80 engravings) in a gorgeous volume and paired them with insights into the artist's life and work. They explain nuts and bolts aspects, such as the origins of the linen used in some of Bruegel's paintings, and how the...

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-In each of these volumes, the clear, precise text is accompanied by relevant illustrations and portraits. Sufficient factual information is offered so readers meet the artists in their historic and cultural milieu and develop a sense of appreciation for their ideas and masterpieces. The author also relates stories from the subjects' lives that would be especially interesting to youngsters. He writes of Leonardo da Vinci's picture of a dragon "...that was so realistic it scared his father," and of his habit of writing backwards. Of Pieter Bruegel, he notes that the artist was said to enjoy frightening "...people, even his own pupils, with all kinds of spooks and uncanny noises." Artwork includes full-color and black-and-white reproductions and photographs.Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin...


Pieter Bruegel and the Art of Laughter

Book Description
Pieter Bruegel (ca. 1525-1569), generally considered the greatest Flemish painter of the sixteenth century, was described in 1604 by his earliest biographer as a supremely comic artist, few of whose works failed to elicit laughter. Today, however, we approach Bruegel's art as anything but a laughing matter. His paintings and drawings are thought to conceal profound allegories best illuminated with scholarly erudition. In this delightfully engaging book, Walter S. Gibson takes a new look at Bruegel, arguing that the artist was no erudite philosopher, but a man very much in the world, and that a significant part of his art is best appreciated in the context of humor. In his illuminating examination of the witty and amusing elements in Bruegel's paintings, prints, and drawings in relation to the sixteenth century...

Grade 1-3-Highlights of the lives and careers of two Renaissance masters. Two to three lines of text on each page accompany a bright, full-color reproduction, drawing, or photograph. Unfortunately, the texts are oversimplified and the reproductions, while good, are not titled or attributed (even the credits on the verso of the title page don't give full citations). Titles in Joy Richardson's "How to Look at Art" series (Gareth Stevens) are better choices for introducing children to art and individual artists.Robin L.

Pieter Bruegel the Elder: Prints and Drawings

From Publishers Weekly
Accompanying an exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, Pieter Bruegel the Elder: Drawings and Prints, edited by Nadine M. Orenstein, features the lesser known works of this famous 16th-century Flemish artist. In the introduction and essays, seven scholars, including museum director Philippe de Montebello, Manfred Sellink, Michiel C. Plomp and the editor, explore diverse biographical and artistic craft issues e.g., all that is known for certain of Bruegel's life is that, though he painted peasants, and early biographers dubbed him the "`Peasant Bruegel,'" he was in fact an urban intellectual. The exhibit treats these drawings in a new light thanks to the "transformative insight" of the late Hans Mielke i.e., new attributions to Bruegel or his circle, such as a sketch formerly attributed to Hieronymous...
