Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525–1569) is known for his beautiful landscapes and peasant scenes. Reproducing all of Bruegel’s best-known paintings, drawings, and prints, this book reveals them in stunning large close-up details that showcase his mastery. It offers astonishing views of popular works such as Hunters in the Snow, Peasant Wedding, and The Tower of Babel. The prints and drawings section includes his series on Sins and Virtues. Bruegel expert Manfred Sellink reveals how the artist introduced new subject matter into fine art and examines his use of landscape, perhaps the artist’s greatest innovation.
