Bruegel babel

Tower of Babel (in Vienna) and Tower of Babel (in Rotterdam) as architectural wonder paintings, reflecting his travels to Italy, specifically to the Coliseum, Rome. These incredibly detailed, intricate, fascinating, hallucinating paintings can be studied for a long long time. My visual materials allow us to go up close and marvel at the detail and knowledge. In this lecture I will also add my knowledge about mediaeval cathedral building practices. These are also reflected in Bruegel’s paintings.
