In 2012, facing the death of his father and impending fatherhood, Toby Ferris set off on a quest to track down and view every painting still in existence by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, the most influential and important artist of Northern Renaissance painting. Beautifully illustrated with 66 color images, the result of that pursuit is a remarkable journey through major European cities and across continents, as Ferris takes a keen analytical eye to these endlessly fascinating paintings, eliciting revelations about Bruegel's work, as well as reflections on mortality, family, and the purpose of art.

"Captivating.... A vibrant portrait of the artist's work and world.... A deeply thoughtful meditation."—Kirkus Reviews
