As Above, So Below by Rudy Rucker

I am currently reading As Above, So Below. Apparently, not a lot is known about the life of Peter Bruegel but the author, Rudy Rucker, did a lot of research to create a fictional account of the places and events that inspired the artist. The descriptions of Renaissance Europe, particularly Antwerp and Brussels, are vivid and haunting. I knew very little about the artist so it's wonderful to learn about his life and work in such an entertaining fashion.

I just love pronouncing the name "Bruegel" - I really roll the "r" for all it's worth. I like him and Bosch. I love the light in their paintings - the same is true, I guess, for all of those northern painters like Van Eyck.

Bosch comes up a lot in the book because Bruegel was regularly compared to him.
