PIETER BRUEGEL
THE DROLL

Pieter Bruegel the Elder  (* probably around 1525/1530 in Breda, † September 9, 1569 in Brussels), also known as the "droll" was a leading painter of the Dutch Renaissance. He is commonly known for his portrayals of peasant life in the Duchy of Brabant (Netherlands and Flanders) in the 16th century.
