Pieter Bruegel the Elder
Lecture | The Menuhin Hall
Wednesday 22 March 2017 - 10:00 until 12:00
Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s genial, comic and sometimes cruel images of peasant life have a universal appeal. Reproductions of his pictures are second only to Van Gogh’s in popularity. Yet behind the harsh realism of his study of humanity lies a deep philosophical mystery. Like Shakespeare, his near contemporary, Bruegel speaks to us through the largely forgotten language of psychological and symbolic imagery and we can see that he is among the foremost Renaissance mystical thinkers while inviting us to observe the pageant of all human life.
