Abstract:

"This book, Pieter Bruegel, offers new insights into the life and work of this original creative genius. The authors, an art historian and a painting conservator/restorer, each bring their special expertise to bear on the many questions that still remain about Bruegel's life - about which surprisingly little is known - and his intellectual outlook. The book also presents the most recent research on the artist's drawing and painting techniques, his approach to composition, and his collaborative relationships with other artists of his circle, incorporating new information learned from recent restoration of his work.

Through its thorough examination of all the evidence available, the book sheds new light on these issues, and, above all, on the essential meaning of Bruegel's art." "Richly illustrated, this important book reveals much new information about one of the most intriguing figures of Renaissance art. It will be an indispensable addition to the libraries of scholars, students, and the many lovers of Bruegel's painting."--BOOK JACKET.
