Excellent book, but Amazon's description is incorrect May 11 2013
By Irving Washington - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I don't know where else to report this, but the paragraph attached to the entry for The Brueghels is about some other book. Amazon if you read these reviews, please fix it.

Bruegel and Sons May 13 2013
By Martin P - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This wonderful book charts the course of the artistic Brueghel family, from Pieter (the elder) to his two sons, Pieter (the younger) and Jan the elder (apparently Jan's son was also a painter). While the book focuses mainly on Pieter the elder (undoubtedly the master of the three) it is interesting to chart the similarities and differences between the father and two sons. The book is compact but filled with brilliant quality stills of the three painters' works, and Emile Michel and Victoria Charles do a great job working with the little biographical information known about the three artists, and add historical information with details of Flemish painting between 1400-1600.

For fans of Brueghel (s), or of Flemish paintings in general, this is a must buy!
Great information on Brueghel Feb. 24 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has practically everything there is to know about the Brueghels (mainly Pieter the Elder). There actually isn't a whole lot known about him, especially considering how important of an artist he was & continues to be. But the historical information that is known is well presented here, as well as insightful interpretations of his works. There are lots of full color reproductions of his art, and the quality of the reproductions is very good. Unfortunately it's a very small book & they would have looked so much better at a larger size. That's my main reason for taking 1 star off the overall rating here. But for anyone interested in Pieter Brughel, this book is really a must have & I highly recommend picking it up.
