Description - Bruegel, Pieter at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna by Wilfred Seipel
Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1528/30-1569) is one of the best-loved artists in the history of Western art. Famous for having elevated the status of landscape painting until it became a virtually independent genre, he is also considered to be the greatest 16th-century Flemish master of scenes from ordinary life. This volume presents the collection of paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder belonging to the Kunsthistorisches Museum. It features 12 world-famous masterpieces: "The Tower of Babel", "Peasant Wedding", "Peasant Dance", "Hunters in the Snow", "Children's Games", "The Fight Between Carneval and Lent", "The Procession to Calvary", "The Gloomy Day", "The Return of the Herd", "The Peasant and the Nest Robber", "The Conversion of St Paul" and "Suicide of Saul".
