Google Arts & Culture

We will access many of the art works we’ll discuss this semester at a google site that has images of really good quality.

Find the site HERE

A search symbol (magnifying glass) on the home page will allow you to look for Breugel. It is Pieter Breugel the Elder we are interested in at this initial point in the semester. Scroll through his painting and drawings. Note that after a while the etchings are labeled after, Breugel, meaning they are copies by other artists.

Take a closer look at the paintings that catch your interest. Look at them carefully, slowly. Write notes on what you see and what questions the details raise in your mind. Nothing to turn in, but bring the notes to class to facilitate our discussion.

Author: Scott Abbott

Ph.D. in German Literature from Princeton University, 1979. Then I taught at Vanderbilt University, BYU, and Utah Valley State College. At Utah Valley University, I'm Director of the Program in Integrated Studies and former Chair of the Department of Humanities and Philosophy. My publications include a book on Freemasonry and the German Novel, two co-authored books with Zarko Radakovic (published in Serbo-Croatian in Belgrade), and translations of a book by Austrian author Peter Handke and of a catalogue of an exhibit called "The German Army and Genocide." More famously, my children are in the process of creating good lives for themselves: as a model and manager, as a teacher of Chinese language, as a watershed scientist and science writer, as a jazz musician, as a corrections officer, as university students, and as parents. I share my life with UVU historian Lyn Bennett and our yellow dog Blue. Some publications at http://works.bepress.com/scott_abbott/
