3 REASONS WHY THE BRUEGHELS’ EXHIBITION AT VENARIA IS A MUST

Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Little Tower of Babel (1563)

There are only a couple of weeks left for the “Brueghel. Masterpieces of Flemish Art” Exhibition currently on display at Venaria Reale. For those still needing convincing, here are 3 awesome reasons for visiting it:

Pieter Brueghel the Elder, The Dutch Proverbs (1559)
Pieter Brueghel the Elder, The Dutch Proverbs (1559)
  1. Among many others, it relevantly discusses (and displays) some of the artists which greatly influenced the work of Pieter Brueghel the Elder: you’ll get the chance to see works signed by none other than Hieronymus Bosch (yup, the one with the funny visions of hell & such).
  2. The event sheds some delightfully clarifying light upon one of Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s most famous works – ”The Danish Proverbs”, whose abundance of references usually goes misunderstood, – and upon the artist’s obvious love for word play.
  3. Now is your chance to finally figure out who painted what & who was the father/son/nephew/son-in-law etc. of whom in the great Brueghel family tree, since there are so many of them, and they seem to have ran out of names, sometimes around the 1550’s.
