Отличная книга про моего любимого художника Питера Брейгеля старшего (есть еще младший и Ян). Автор интересно рассказывает о его работах и времени, при котором жил художник. Интересно, что он умер в 40 лет, но успел оставить такой сильный след в истории искусства. Теперь придется посетить Нидерланды, Бельгию, Австрию и Германию, потому что его немногочисленные работы разбросаны по музеям Европы.
