9780195199536: Bruegel (The World of art)

Although Pieter Bruegel's pictures have been celebrated throughout the past four hundred years, the artist himself remains a shadowy and misunderstood figure. In a volume which will widen the understanding and enhance the enjoyment of Bruegel's many admirers, Walter Gibson illuminates the sixteenth-century world in which the artist lived. He analyzes the different strands of Bruegel's inspiration, examines his works, and considers his influence on later artists. Dispelling the notion of Bruegel the simpleton peasant, the author shows us Bruegel the cultivated artist, satisfying an urban society's pleasure in moralizing tales and proverbs, rooted in the rich, bourgeois, brilliant Antwerp of the Flemish Renaissance. 153 illus., 20 in color

From the Back Cover:

Pieter Bruegel the Elder has enjoyed both admiration and popularity for four hundred years. Yet although his pictures have become familiar part of our lives, the artist himself remains a shadowy and misunderstood figure. Walter Gibson dispels the notion of Bruegel the simpleton peasant, instead, he shows us Bruegel the cultivated artist.
