Subject: Bruegel, The Seasons and The World
Speaker: GAVIN PLUMLEY
In 1565, Pieter Bruegel the Elder created a series of paintings for a dining room in Antwerp. Charting the course of year, they changed the way we view the world through art. Landscape was previously just decorative backdrop. With Bruegel it became the focus. This lecture explores how Bruegel pioneered this new way of thinking.
