Pieter Bruegel and the Idea of Human Nature

Pieter Bruegel and the Idea of Human Nature


During a backdrop of religious and political conflicts in the 16th-century, Flemish artist Bruegel explored how people perceived human nature. This illustrated book examines the effect of Bruegel’s philosophical ponderings and the impact of his art.

Bruegel’s detailed landscapes and biblical scenes depict mankind’s labours and pleasures, often focusing on ignorance and insignificance. His work questioned how well we know ourselves and others. Published on the 450th anniversary of the artist’s death, Pieter Bruegel & The Idea of Human Nature features stunning illustrations of his paintings.
