Publisher's Synopsis

Inspiring Artists tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, not only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. It explores their life and times through significant pieces of their art, looking at the work in terms of its context, from conflict (Goya), to festivities (Bruegel) to personal struggle (Van Gogh). Each work is also considered in terms of its style, technique and artistic innovation.

Pieter Bruegel is famous for his paintings of sweeping landscapes and peasant life. He created visions of harmony and horror that have dazzled artists and viewers with their detail, ambition, humour and skill, and have inspired artists as wide-ranging as LS Lowry, Gerhard Richter and Grayson Perry.
