Claude-Henri Rocquet poet, playwright, and critic has marshalled the full range of his talents to create a dazzling historical novel about the artist Peter Bruegel the Elder. To the few facts we have Bruegel died in 1569 around the age of fifty; he lived in Antwerp and in Brussels; his work was much admired Rocquet adds his own speculations on the sights, smells, and textures of Bruegel's world, on the artist's innermost feelings and intimate conversations, on his spiritual life and its possible translation on the artist's canvas."
