Exhibitions and Displays - The Courtauld Institute of Art

(Saturday) (Sunday)

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525-1569) Kermis at Hoboken, 1559 

 

The Netherlandish artist Pieter Bruegel the Elder (around 1525–1569) achieved widespread fame for his innovative graphic works. Bruegel’s close observation and exceptional skills as a draughtsman result in a palpable vision of the natural world in his landscapes, whilst his figural compositions burst with rich and keenly observed detail.

The numerous works produced in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries that closely imitate his style attest to Bruegel’s lasting visual influence and, more practically, catered to continued demand amongst collectors. This display brings together works by Bruegel and works formerly attributed to him within the Courtauld Gallery’s collection to examine this legacy.

Included in your admission ticket for The Gallery. If you wish to see this display, please select a date between 16 January and 17 April 2016 when booking tickets.
