Flemish barock painters landscapes

Here's some paintings of the Tower of Babel :-) So fascinating...

Abel Grimmer
Lucas van Valckenborch
Pieter Brueghel
Pieter Brueghel
Adriaen van Stalbempt
Frans Francken
Hieronymus Franken

I simply love it that they have packed the painting full of things to watch, look at and find...
When I was younger, I had two postcards by Ilon Wikland, about a little village in summer and in winter... I used to look at those hours and inventing stories about all the people in the pictures...

  This is about the same as the fascination with Charles Wysocki's pictures :-)

Or this one
Umbrellas in the rain, Venice by Maurice Prendergast
This one has also lovely colors :-)

Or Nobuo Watanabe...
