Painting Life by Robert L. Bonn
Book DescriptionPainting Life uniquely conveys the relevance of the paintings of the old Flemish master Pieter Bruegel, ""The Elder"" (1520/5-1590) for modern audiences. 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 Bruegel's 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.
