 BRUEGHEL, Pieter, the Elder
Brueghel’s art is often seen as the last phase in the development of a long tradition of Netherlandish painting beginning with Jan van Eyck in the 15th century.
Brueghel clearly rejected the influences of Italian Renaissance art and its classical foundations, which dominated the work of many of his Flemish contemporaries.
Brueghel’s art has been variously interpreted as referring to the conflicts between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism, to the political domination of the Lowlands by the Spanish, and as parallels to dramatic allegories performed publicly by Flemish societies of rhetoric.

Brueghel had a successful life as a painter and a stimulating one as a member of a distinguished group of humanists.
Although objective and open in his approach to his genre scenes, Brueghel was by no means simple in his proverbial and religious paintings, which are presented with a grandeur of landscape that engenders an uneasy feeling of man's smallness and futility in face of the universe.
Brueghel died in 1569, while still a young man, leaving behind two sons, Jan, called Velvet, and Pieter, the Younger, both of whom became painters.

 Biography
Pieter Bruegel the Elder (byname Peasant Bruegel, also spelled Brueghel or Breughel), the greatest Netherlandish painter of the 16th century, whose landscapes and vigorous, often witty scenes of peasant life are particularly renowned.
Since Bruegel signed and dated many of his works, his artistic evolution can be traced from the early landscapes, in which he shows affinity with the Flemish 16th-century landscape tradition, to his last works, which are Italianate.
The scenes from peasant life are well known, but a number of subjects that are not easy to classify include The Fight Between Carnival and Lent (1559), Children's Games (1560), and Dulle Griet, also known as Mad Meg (1562).
