Lost Breugel Uncovered

"The painting was beautiful, just not admired. Then suddenly, after more than four centuries, it was." Check out this NY Times article about a lost painting by Breugel. This guy is one of the great masters of fantastic art. He made some amazing paintings of the Tower of Bable that you may have seen before. If you like his stuff, check out Jacek Yerka, who paints today using similar techniques. Or, if you want something a little more modern and funky, check out Mattias Adolfsson.

Thanks for pointing this out! Breughel is just awesome. I like the more fantastic stuff more (esp. Mad Meg & the Triumph of Death) but this new one looks good too.

You might like

Sergey Tyukanov too -- Breughel's influence is pretty clear in some of his work.
