Liz Hager reviews the novel Headlong by Michael Frayn, a "thoroughly engaging tale of the easily distracted and ethically challenged philosopher, who convinces himself that he has discovered a 'lost' Bruegel."
The Prado, home to so many masterpieces now houses one more "The Wine of St. Martin's Day" by Pieter Breugel the Elder. The painting has been in the Prado's collection but was recently re-attributed. The New York Times has a nice interactive feature where you can mouse over the painting to zoom in for a closer look. Painters' Table recommends a visit to the Prado to see the work in person but the Times feature offers a nice preview and they published a related article you can read as well.
Edited by artist Brett Baker, Painters' Table highlights writing from the painting blogosphere as it is published and serves as a platform for exploring blogs that focus primarily on the subject of painting.
