Pieter Bruegel by Larry Silver( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 492 libraries worldwide
The exciting recent rediscovery in Spain of a missing canvas by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (ca. 1525-69) has jolted a revived public awareness of the great Flemish painter and his work. Best known for his amusing depictions of peasants, landscapes, and Bosch-like fantasies, Bruegel also created a wide range of highly original interpretations of religious themes in an era marked by religious controversies. Over a career of two decades as both a printmaker and a painter, he found his artistic niche in Europe's leading center of international trade, the emerging capital of capitalism, Antwerp. All of Bruegel's drawings, prints, and paintings on both canvas and panel - including the new Madrid canvas - are examined for form and content with comprehensive analysis. In addition, interpretation of the full range of Flemish paintings and prints during his generation is presented through the lens of Hieronymus Cock, Bruegel's own print publisher, "At the Sign of the Four Winds". Within this spectrum Bruegel's uniqueness and mastery emerges clearly. While scholars will appreciate the novel insights of this comprehensive re-examination of Pieter Bruegel, its highly accessible text will introduce newcomers and the general public to the delights of this inventive, trenchant, yet often amusing visual commentator on the human condition. All readers will relish the large-scale reproductions and frequent details in full color of his entire oeuvre in all media. This handsome, largescale volume will form the definitive study and accessible introduction to the life and art of Pieter Bruegel

Pieter Bruegel and the art of laughter by Walter S Gibson( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 425 libraries worldwide
"Pieter Bruegel (ca. 1525-1569), generally considered the greatest Flemish painter of the sixteenth century, was described in 1604 by his earliest biographer as a supremely comic artist, few of whose works failed to elicit laughter. Today, however, we approach Bruegel's art as anything but a laughing matter. His paintings and drawings are thought to conceal profound allegories best illuminated with scholarly erudition. In this book, Walter S. Gibson takes a new look at Bruegel, arguing that the artist was no erudite philosopher, but a man very much in the world, and that a significant part of his art is best appreciated in the context of humor. In his examination of the witty and amusing elements in Bruegel's paintings, prints, and drawings in relation to the sixteenth century European culture of laughter, Gibson reminds us exactly why Bruegel was one of the most original artists of his time." "In a series of chapters, Gibson explores the function and production of laughter in the sixteenth century, examines the ways in which Bruegel exploited the comic potential of Hieronymus Bosch, and traces how the artist developed his remarkable gift for physiognomy in his work, culminating in three paintings of festive peasants he produced during the 1560s: the Wedding Dance, the Kermis, and the Wedding Banquet. Gibson also takes a detailed look at the Dulle Griet, Bruegel's most complex evocation of Bosch."--Jacket

Pieter Bruegel the Elder : art discourse in the sixteenth-century Netherlands by Todd M Richardson( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
"Pieter Bruegel the Elder: Art Discourse in the Sixteenth-Century Netherlands examines the later images by Bruegel in the context of two contemporary discourses - art theoretical and convivial. The first concerns the purely visual interactions between artists and artistic practices that unfold in pictures, which often transgress the categorical boundaries modern scholars place on their work, such as sacred and profane, antique and modern, and Italian and Northern. In this context, the images themselves - those of Bruegel, his contemporaries and predecessors - make up the primary source material from which the author argues. The second deals with the dialogue that occurred between viewers in front of pictures and the way in which pictorial strategies facilitated their visual experience and challenged their analytical capabilities. In this regard, the author expands his base of primary sources to include convivial texts, dialogues and correspondences, and texts by rhetoricians and Northern humanists addressing art theoretical issues. Challenging the conventional wisdom that the artist eschewed Italianate influences, this study demonstrates how Bruegel's later peasant paintings reveal a complicated artistic dialogue in which visual concepts and pictorial motifs from Italian and classical ideas are employed for a subject that was increasingly recognized in the sixteenth century as a specifically Northern phenomenon. Similar to the Dutch rhetorician societies and French Pl?de poets who cultivated the vernacular language using classical Latin, the function of this interpictorial discourse, the author argues, was not simply to imitate international trends, a common practice during the period, but to use it to cultivate his own visual vernacular language. Although the focus is primarily on Bruegel's later work, the author's conclusions are applied to sketch a broader understanding of both the artist himself and the vibrant artistic dialogue occurring in the Netherl"--Provided by publisher
Bruegel : the complete paintings, drawings, and prints : [catalogue by Pieter Bruegel( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 259 libraries worldwide
"Pieter Bruegel the Elder (died 1569) has always been acknowledged as one of the greatest and most influential artists in the history of the Netherlands. His fame began to spread in the course of his short life and the popularity of his work continued to rise during the centuries following his death in 1569. It is all the more astonishing, therefore, that we know so very little about the artist's life, his training, his opinions on art and society, and his doings and whereabouts during his artistic career of just seventeen years. Bruegel must be judged by the wonderful ensemble of forty-odd paintings, slightly more than sixty drawings and some seventy designs for prints that have come down to us. Due to the combination of his elusive life with the highly intricate and complex subjects, there are - as for Jheronimus Bosch, with whom he was already compared during his lifetime - numerous myths about the artist and his work. At the very core of his great oeuvre stands a man who more than any other artist bridges the pictorial traditions of the Flemish Primitives and the golden era of Rubens and Van Dyck. But in the end Bruegel is one of the greatest painters and draughtsmen in the history of Western art, and above all an artist with a disturbingly sharp insight into the frailty of human morals, a sound sense of humour, and a unique pictorial wit."--BOOK JACKET

Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Netherlandish proverbs and the practice of rhetoric by Mark A Meadow( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
"The paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder offer us a glimpse into the world of the sixteenth-century Netherlands, a world of peasants and burghers, of civic and religious life. How did viewers in Bruegel's own day look at his art? In order to offer twenty-first-century eyes something of the experience of a sixteenth-century viewer, this book takes an in-depth look at a single painting by the great Flemish artist, his Netherlandish Proverbs of 1559." "Bruegel's painting is a collection of over one hundred proverbs, each acted out in a single-minded manner by peasants, burghers, monks, inn-keepers and other social types. In order to understand what a viewer of the time might have perceived when viewing this image, this book begins by looking closely at Bruegel's composition. From this starting point, the author offers insights into how proverbs were used and understood in the sixteenth century and into period models for organizing collections. Lastly, the author turns to discussions of Bruegel by his contemporaries, and the insights these give us into the viewing of this and other of his paintings."--Jacket

Renowned for his effervescent and rollicking paintings of Flemish life, Peter Bruegel the Elder also holds a place among the world's finest engraving designers.

The second part envisions the inner worlds of imagination, morality, and religion with scenes from the Gospels and Apocrypha.In addition, the book offers cogent and stimulating commentaries by H. Arthur Klein that provide details of Bruegel's life and influences as well as his techniques. Many of these prints served as models for subsequent Bruegel canvases, and each image is accompanied by an essay that places it within its historical context.
