Kolo kolo mlynsky :::: Bruegel in the Czech Republic

I knew that Julia (whom I have never met) was an intriguing character when I first encountered her piece on Czech house shoes. Now she has once again beaten me to a worthy topic and written it up beautifully. See Kolo kolo mlynsky :::: Bruegel in the Czech Republic.

I guess tonight is my night to respond to more than one blog of yours. I also am a Bruegel fan for quite some times. My brother has several books on him and I always loved to look at his work. It is so intricate and fascinating.

Welcome to the blog... it is kind of neat to make the acquaintance of a reader I didn't know before starting it! I took a very quick look at your blog and will want to look at it some more when I get back from visiting friends over Christmas. (They don't have internet access.)

As I wrote on Julia's blog, my father was always fond of Bruegel, so I sort of grew up familiar with some of the work. Later on (maybe four or five years ago) I had occasion to write a paper on the seasonal paintings, which was fun. It related to whether perhaps the viewer was intended to take a journey through the painting, in the manner of earlier devotional painting.
