Summary
Profiles Pieter Bruegel, a complex man who was not only the greatest Flemish painter of his century but one whose extraordinary power and whose range of subject matter placed him among the handful of great painters in history. His pictures linger in the memory not merely because they delight the eye but because they engage the mind. Crammed with gyrating human figures and studded with every sort of homely detail, they constitute a kind of literary tapestry, which can be thoroughly read as well as briefly viewed. Includes a chronology of artists in Bruegel's era
