Product Description

In this two-part program from the Vision on Art series, contemporary Flemish painter Harold van de Perre looks at two aspects of Pieter Brueghel's (1525-1569) genius--his gift for storytelling and his brilliant technique. Part I, Prophet for All Seasons, focuses on Brueghel as a universal novelist whose splendidly composed paintings form a detailed panorama of village and city life, war and the gospels. Part II, Painter for All Seasons, investigates Brueghel's intricate brushwork and color compositions, and illuminates his realistic style, which is as complex as life itself.

Once again, the Vision on Art series provides a clarifying view of a complex artist. Pieter Brueghel the Elder is a reverent study of the great natural painter, who defies historical categorization and surprises us again and again with his unique genius. We see the influence of his days as a draftsman, printmaker, and master engineer demonstrated in his best-known works. This two-part production is an ideal introduction to the study of Brueghel. The first segment deals with his vision of nature and the world and his thoroughly humanist themes. The second segment focuses on his fascinating technique with composition, brush strokes, and use of color. The video takes several interesting graphic approaches to demonstrating how the painter worked; one very effective scene compares his works to a child's elementary painting to underscore his mode of prospective. The Vision on Art series is an outstanding teaching tool that will guide you to a deeper understanding of the Flemish tradition of painting. --Brendan J. LaSalle

this is the type of thing you buy on amazon for 4 dollars and get a lot of value out of it. It's not necessarily a fantastic ducumentary but it is a lot better than the mixed bag of the Kultur label documentaries. there are a lot great home vision art documentaries out there and this is one of them (actually there are two on this tape so its a great bargin).
