The Pieter Bruegel Atlas

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525/1530-1569) was one of the most innovative artists of the 16th century. Although he is mainly remembered as the acute observer of peasant scenes, Bruegel was also a great draftsman and graphic artist, storyteller and humourist. He lived and worked in the Brabant cities of Antwerp, Brussels, and Mechelen and was one of the first Dutch artists to travel throughout Italy to Sicily. The Pieter Bruegel Atlas portrays his life on an illustrated timeline: important dates and periods in his life are explored through text, images and maps. This unique atlas-based approach unites culture and tourism harmoniously in one book. Plentiful anecdotes illuminate the society and culture in which Bruegel lived, and practical routes help readers discover the artist for themselves through city walks, car trips, and museums. AUTHOR: Gunter Hauspie is an historian and an experienced travel journalist who is regularly published in both Belgian and international travel magazines. He has written over a dozen travel guides.
