Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525–1530 – 9 September 1569)

Pieter Bruegel, The Dutch Proverbs 1559.

Pieter Bruegel, The Fall of the Rebel Angels 1562.

Pieter Bruegel, Christ Carrying the Cross 1564.

Pieter Bruegel, The Mad Greta 1563.

The title character of the painting, created between 1562 and 1564, is a 
character of Flemish folklore who storms hell in a fit of madness to 
satiate his greed.

The painting was influenced by the works of Hieronymus Bosch.

Pieter Bruegel, The Tower of Babel 1563.

Pieter Bruegel, The Hunters in the Snow (Winter) 1565.

Pieter Bruegel, The Sermon of Saint John the Baptist 1566.

Pieter Bruegel, Landscape with the Fall of Icarus 1558.

Pieter Bruegel, The Misanthrope 1568.

One of the artist's last paintings, which was painted a year before his death.

The phrase in Dutch, at the bottom of the painting, translates as: "Since the 
world is so treacherous, I wear mourning." The letters were drawn by an 
unauthorized hand and probably at a later time, but it is believed that the 
meaning of this inscription coincides with what the artist wanted to show.

Pieter Bruegel, The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark 1613.
