Painting: Bruegel Up Close

Some super detail shots of Bruegel The Elder in action. The idea of showing these is to show what a fully zoomed out reproduction can never show - the individual brushstrokes of the artist. The details give us a new way to enter the work through the process by which they were made. I couldn't find many of these details online so I went to the library and found some books with them, scanned them and now (hopefully) others who are interested in such details can make use of them.
