304 Reviews nuanced vernacular language, here Bruegel has drawn on the lessons gained from Italian art to reframe a vernacular genre painting. Similar discoveries are made with each example. One oddity about this study, given the welcome use of careful visual analysis, is the absence of some rudimentary information about the scale of the works. In his discussion of the Peasant and the Nest Robber, Richardson remarks that the work is noticeably different in size from the previous works he has discussed, yet no sizes are provided, nor does he inform us whether this work is smaller or larger in scale. The book reads like a thesis; there is an excessive repetition of the arguments being made, and a presumption of specialized knowledge. He presumes we know the meaning of kermis, and does not define it despite asking what is the nature of a kermis in the Introduction. On the whole, though, these are minor flaws in a thoughtful and scholarly book with a welcome exploration of the visual language found in the works of Bruegel.
