Amy Orrock, co-curator of ‘Bruegel: Defining a Dynasty’ (Holburne Museum, Bath, 2017), introduces Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c1525-69) as a distinctive artistic voice of the 16th century and considers the ways in which his images were transmuted and popularised after his death in the works of his two sons, Pieter Brueghel the Younger (c1564-1638) and Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625).
