Peter Brueghel: The Elder by Gustav Gluck, 1936. Peter Brueghel the Elder (c. 1525 - 1569), a Dutch Renaissance painter and print-maker, who is sometimes known as Peasant Brueghel, is generally acclaimed today as among the greatest and most original artists of his time. Painting during the Middle Ages, with the exception of a few rare portraits, was almost exclusively dedicated to the service of religion. The artist expressed himself mainly in altar panels and altarpieces, the chief purpose of which was narrative and instructional. The scope of Brueghel's ideas included everything that could be seen or conceived in his own day: Heaven, Hell and the World. Hardcover issued without dust-jacket, 1936. George Braziller, Publisher, New York. Copyright 1936 in Austria by Anton Schroll & Co., Vienna, Austria. Prepared in collaboration with Chanticleer Company, Inc., New York. Printed by Christoph Reisser's Söhne, Vienna, Austria. Forty-nine large color art plates. Oversized art catalog, pp. 54.
