Based on extensive research and first-hand observation Robert L. Bonn guides the reader through the scenes depicted in these remarkable works of art, including the something more so often imbedded in them--the social context in which they were painted, and how they relate to our lives today. Bonn clearly explains why Bruegels paintings brilliantly capture the universal conditions of conflict, work, play, folly, and chaos, as well as innumerable pieces of biblical and folk wisdom. His paintings can be found in collections all over the world, including Madrid, Vienna, Brussels, Rome, and Prague, to name a few.
