"Most of Bruegel's first paintings were landscapes. He combined the scenery near his home with the mountains and valleys he remembered from his trip to Italy."
This biography introduces Bruegel in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Bruegel, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
