In pursuit of Bruegel

For a while now we have had the idea of pursuing Pieter Bruegel the Elder by visiting cities where his works are exhibited – including Brussels, Antwerp and Vienna.  I’ll also add posts about paintings by Bruegel that we have seen in London, Berlin and Madrid. It’s not an original idea: we were inspired by Robert L Bonn’s, Painting Life, in which the author does the same.

  1. Don.t forget Bruegel’s drawings and engravings! There are about 150 often hidden away in draws in many different museums. They range from Alpine scenes to highly imaginative Bosch-like designs full of amazing details and they give a whole other aspect to his genius.
