I did, but I guess it wasn't very controversial : ) I have used it before as a resource, but it is good to see it getting more attention.

I like this period in art - particularly that of the Pieter Brugels. I think I prefer the elder generally, but I have read fascinating discussions of the Younger's Battle between Carnival and Lent - there is a lot happening in that painting. But it's the elder's warm depiction of everyday life that appeals more.

(Sorry - I realise the my first sentance is a bit unclear. I meant that probably more people did check it out, but there was no discussion because it is not controversial. Unless someone really hates 16th century Flemish art, in which case we can start a flame war)

And now I will apologise for being tired, and having very poor proof-reading skills. In my yet more unclear second post, I meant to write "I realise that my first sentance is unclear".
