Duch ( 1525 - 1569 )
Oil on canvas
Pieter Bruegel the Elder
(c. 1525 - 9 September 1569) was a
Netherlandish Renaisssance painter and printmaker
known for his landscapes and peasant scenes.
He is nicknamed "Peasant Bruegel" to distinguish him
from other members of the Brueghel dynasty,
but is also the one generally meant when the context
does not make clear which "Bruegel" is being referred to.
From 1559 he dropped the 'h' from his name and
started signing his paintings as Bruegel.
