My recent visit to Brussels and The Musee de Beaux Arts brought me close to this master. I was astounded at some of his paintings, the landscapes, the imagination after the angels falling and especially by the way he characterizes some of the most important occurrences in history among the everyday life of his Flemish folk. I decided to buy this book and several more about him and have made a list of the museums I need to visit to see some other of his masterpieces

I am not an art connoisseur. My first experience viewing what most consider masterpieces was a trip to Spain and visiting the Prado, where I was entranced by the Velazquez portrait of the Princess. I also saw works by Goya and El Greco which were fascinating to me. Thus when I was in Vienna, I spent a lunchless day (not wanting to leave) at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and loved Bruegel's paintings there - especially the Peasant Wedding, Peasant Dance and Hunters Returning Home. It was a joy to ...more

“Ловци у снегу представљају можда најзначаније Бројгелово дело. Нико у историји уметости није успео тако уверљиво да прикаже хладноћу, тишину и мир зимског пејзажа. Снег, владар Бројгеловог завичаја, игра улогу „пригушивача“ и у складу је са стањем ловаца, исцрпљених од хајке из које носе мршав плен.” 0 likes
