This stunning compilationof the work Pieter Bruegel,the 16th century's mostfamous Netherlandishartist, is being publishedin anticipation of the450-year anniversaryof the artist's death.  Nearly 450 years after his death, Pieter Bruegel the Elder is widely regarded as the 16th century's greatest Netherlandish painter. This book is the tie-in catalog for a once-in-a-generation exhibition of Bruegel's work at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Bruegel's work is renowned for its stunning compositions, often moralizing and always teeming with characters, inviting the viewer to reflect on the multi-layered complexity of each image.
