Excerpt

Most of the material included in this book was originally published in a special Bruegel edition of THE ARTS. Mr. Barker's essay met with such immediate success that in order to meet the demand the editor decided to increase the number of illustrations and publish Mr. Barker's noteworthy essay in permanent form.

Comparatively little has been written in English on Pieter Bruegel the Elder, nothing in fact except a few passing magazine articles. At the request of the artists THE ARTS undertook to supply this want. In selecting Mr. Barker to carry out this important work THE ARTS was particularly fortunate. Besides being an ardent student of the genius of Bruegel, the author, in the course of his duties as European correspondent of THE ARTS, was able to carry on the special research necessary to give permanent value to the following essay.
