The Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien is showing the largest ever comprehensive exhibition of works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (sometimes spelled ’Brueghel’, and sometimes even ’Breugel’ and ’Breughel’).   On display are a whopping three quarters of all of his conserved paintings, plus almost half of his drawings and prints.  Last week I was so lucky … More A masterful hand – Bruegel at the KHM Vienna

Where Obelix, Captain Kirk, and Han Solo mingle: The Vienna ComicCon 2018
