Pieter Bruegel Artwork

An informative documentary on the European master painter Pieter Bruegel. The level of detail in his paintings has always astounded me and this episode pointed out some details that I had not been aware of. Something nice and laid back to start off your Wednesday for those who live in Kuwait, or simply to anyone who appreciates fine art.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  4. Bruegel totally rocks. He had the most amazing and creative (and disturbed) imagination, totally out of his time. His work can give me nightmares.

    COT: Have you ever seen the Isenheim alterpiece – a kind of triple tryptich – in the Unter den Linden Museum in Colmar, France? It is also gruesome, and full of mystic symbolism.

    Oh you are not alone. Hell, I don’t even know how to sketch properly.

    @Sushi

    Nice eye. I noticed that too.

    No long no see (or heard for that matter) 🙂

    I have been fine. Thank you so much for asking. And how are you? I shall drop on your blog anytime soon.

    Oh yes. Isn’t it the one with Jesus Christ on the cross? Very gruesome indeed.
