Abstract:

Pieter Bruegel: Parables of Order and Enterprise investigates the artist's depictions of folkloric themes and his strategic use of pictorial structures that were established in Netherlandish painting. Arguing that Bruegel's depictions of popular fables address issues of social transformation and conflict, Ethan Matt Kavaler demonstrates that they affirm ideals of a stable, hierarchical society, an ethos opposed to a culture increasingly oriented toward business. The author presents a detailed rendering of the evolving world in which Bruegel worked using a wide assortment of images and writings, including legal handbooks, popular theater, costume books, personal correspondence, emblem books, and alba amicorum.
