Description

This CD-ROM explores the work of the foremost figures of 16th-century Flemish art: Bruegel, with his popular picturesque characters, Bosch and his fantastic figures, and Patinir's almost surreal landscapes, amongst others. The reproductions enable the user to examine the work of these men in detail. It is part of a series of six CD-ROM titles which examine the work of Bruegel, Rembrandt, Rodin, Rubens, Van Eyck and Vermeer. The work of these eminent artists and their immediate contemporaries is set against the history of their life and times, illuminating their influences and inspirations in a comprehensive yet accessible way. The CD-ROMs include reproductions which facilitate study of the paintings as a whole or in detail, while pre-set details highlight the minutiae of the paintings. Cross referencing between the paintings, text and index shows the artists, themes and techniques, as well as providing social and biographical details.show more
