Bruegel — Pieter Bruegel the Elder remains a mystery, as few details of his 16th century life are known. As an artist, he was greatly influenced and inspired by his great Dutch predecessor, Hieronymous Bosch. His work reveals typically Boschian themes, and he used a similar keen humor to convey his artistic message. Bruegel’s renowned works depicting the life of peasants are also examined in this documentary. He was one of the first masters of landscape painting, and his satirical drawings are as relevant today as in their own time. Bruegel’s religious works combine simplicity and depth in their spiritual message. Leading art historians and scholars give a glimpse at the life and work of this Dutch master painter.
