"Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525–1569) was a Netherlandish Renaissance painter who, originally from Brabant, resided in Brussels during the last six years of his life. His reputation as one of the greatest of all Netherlandish Renaissance painters is justified as his paintings give an insight into man’s relationship to nature. His artworks have inspired many, including the renowned painter Peter Rubens, as well as many Flemish painters in the following 17th century."
