This is a remarkable work on the work of the Belgian painter. Lavishly illustrated with reproductions of many of the most celebrated paintings, the magnificent catalog is paired with a fascinating text that provides a biography of the artist and puts the various paintings into the context of his life as well as of the time in which they were created. A special section discusses those of his works that were copies of the works of his father, Pierre Brueghel the Elder - of whom he was a long time imitator. The author classifies Brueghel's works by subjects, from landscapes to his depictions of proverbs and his first works, achieving a priceless reference on the life and work of a great artist.
Pieter Brueghel Le Jeune (1564 or 1565-1636) was a Belgian Renaissance painter. Greatly influenced by his father, Pieter Brueghel the Elder, he quickly found himself at the head of a very productive workshop, and came to be nicknamed "Brueghel from Hell" due to his fascination with fire in the theme of his paintings. The entirety of his work exhibits the Flemish realism style. Rustic and rocky settings are characteristic of his paintings.
