Summary:
One of the most beloved of Netherlandish artists, Pieter Bruegel the Elder (ca. 1525/30{u2013}1569) is best known today for his paintings of peasants and proverbs. He is now less commonly recognized as the inventive and influential draftsman who brought a new naturalism to the rendering of landscape and who created a body of print designs that pointedly dissects the imperfections of human nature, even though it was through this exceptional graphic work that Bruegel's art achieved widespread fame during the sixteenth century. This catalogue accompanied the first major exhibition devoted solely to Bruegel's remarkable drawings and prints, which have recently been the subject of research that has given rise to a reevaluation of the parameters of Bruegel's oeuvre. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website
