4.0 out of 5 stars A good guide - on a budget
Be warned: this book is printed at quite a small format (smaller than A4), and the majority of the illustrations are again half the size of that, or even smaller. The main virtue of this publication is its completeness, and as a guide to every painting produced by Pieter Bruegel the Elder this is an excellent addition to a library of art books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Introduction to Bruegel
A very small and thin introduction to Bruegel.

The reproductions are nice but restrained due to the small size of the book.

Wont satisfy those who desire a more in depth knowledge of this painter.

By A Customer
This review is from: Bruegel: The Complete Paintings (Taschen Basic Art Series) (Paperback)
Be warned: this book is printed at quite a small format (smaller than A4), and the majority of the illustrations are again half the size of that, or even smaller. The main virtue of this publication is its completeness, and as a guide to every painting produced by Pieter Bruegel the Elder this is an excellent addition to a library of art books. The text also provides a useful and pretty thorough introduction to Bruegel's art. If you really want to see these paintings in their splendour, however, you will need to invest in something that reproduces them at a rather bigger size.

This review is from: Bruegel: The Complete Paintings (Taschen Basic Art Series) (Paperback)
This is one of many beautifully illustrated books in the Basic Art series. Bruegel captured everyday life in fine detail and this book is profusely illustrated in colour to examine this. It provides an intelligent but clear text and is profusely illustrated with colour paintings and detail. Excellent value,. I recommend any book in the series.

Now need to get a bigger format book about Brueghel as the pics were a bit small - but it was an excellent introduction to this amazing painter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruegal's paintings ., 2 May 2013

This review is from: Bruegel: The Complete Paintings (Taschen Basic Art Series) (Paperback)
I really liked this book because it covers much of his work . Pictures are clear and interesting . It also shows the famous original "Massacre of the Innocents " without being censored ( i.e I understand that years ago one king did not approve of the picture showing young children being harmed and substituted Bruegal's children with animals ).
