The first major European painting to feature falling snowflakes was Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s The Adoration of the Kings in the Snow, from 1563. Bruegel is known for being technically innovative, and this book explores that aspect of his work through a close look at this beloved painting, accompanied by stunning full-page detail reproductions of the work. Using the newest technology available to art historians and working with printed graphics and drawings in addition to the painting itself, the book offers new insight into the ways Bruegel worked and achieved his still-fresh effects. Accompanying an exhibition at the Oskar Reinhart Collection in Winterthur, Switzerland, this catalog has something new to offer even to the most dedicated fan of this European master.
