Pieter Bruegel the Elder's enigmatic, humorous, sometimes grotesque paintings remain among the most distinctive examples of Netherlandish art. Though he had traveled to Italy, Bruegel turned his back on the popular Italianate styles of the time and developed traditional Netherlandish genres of painting.His paintings and etchings served as windows into other worlds, illustrating the mountains and rivers of far off lands. Bruegel lived through a period of immense social and religious upheaval, in which the Catholic Habsburgs were determined to crush the growing ranks of Protestant dissenters in the Netherlands. Bruegel was among the first artists to paint almost exclusively for the growing class of merchants and intellectuals.Works featured in this program include The Netherlandish Proverbs, The Triumph Of Death, The Hunters In The Snow, G loomy Day, The Massacre Of The Innocents, and The Wedding Feast.
