Os camponeses na arte de Pieter Bruegel, o Velho (c. 1525-1569)

Genre painting, a tradition in History of Art, was very developed by Bruegel, the Older. His scenes of daily peasant life profoundly marked the image of pre-industrial Europe. The purpose of this work is to analyze his image of the peasant: his life, parties, his dances, the remarkable moments of his life.

Ética e Estética da Música

Na filosofia de Ramon Llull (1232-1316)

Brief exposition of the importance of Music in Western aesthetic thought. Since Plato, and later, in the Middle Ages, San Isidore of Seville, Guido of Arezzo and Ramon Llull, all had thinkers who did meditations on the importance of the aesthetics of harmonic sounds for human existence. In relation to Llull, we deal with the subject from the works Doctrina pueril (c. 1274-1276), Fèlix o el Libre de meravelles (c. 1289), Arbre de Ciència (c. 1295-1296), Ars generalis ultima (c. 1305), Ars brevis (1308) and especially, the Libre de contemplació en Déu (c. 1273-1274).
