Jan Bruegel the Elder built on his father's work

Jan Bruegel the Elder was one of the most important and successful Flemish artists and he was active around the turn of the 17th century. However, it's no real surprise that he grew into a talented artist. His father, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, was a pioneer of landscape and genre painting. These two genres gained popularity in the centuries that followed, in part thanks to his son's contributions.

This exhibition centres on the artistic milestones in Jan Bruegel the Elder's life. Visitors will undoubtedly come to appreciate the realism in Jan's landscapes and the way the figures bring the landscapes to life. It's an excellent, intimate and delicate exhibition.
