sinopsis

This first comprehensive book on one of the most cherished
masterpieces of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels,
argues that with his Fall of the Rebel Angels (1562) Pieter Bruegel
(died 1569) turned a traditional devotional theme into an innovative
commentary on his own time, and situates the painting within the early
modern cultures of knowledge and collecting. More particularly, it
exposes that many of the hybrid falling angels are carefully composed
of naturalia and artificialia, as they were collected in art and curiosity
cabinets of the time.This prompts an examination of the world at
the time that Bruegel painted the Fall of the Rebel Angels: locally, in
the courtly centers of Antwerp and Brussels on the eve of the Dutch
revolt, and globally, in the context of the discovery of the New World.
Painted as a tale of hubris and pride, Bruegel’s masterpiece becomes
a meditation on the potential and danger of man’s pursuit of art
knowledge and politics.
