Bruegel. The Originals - Royal Museums of Fine Art Belgium

May 24, 2019

On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium celebrate the great Renaissance master through various projects.

THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

Pieter Bruegel the Elder is one of the most famous painters from the Renaissance period. Yet only about forty paintings from his short career (he died in 1569, around the age of 40) have been preserved, making them rare and extremely valuable. The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium house the second largest ensemble of Bruegel the Elder paintings in the world. At the Old Masters Museum, you can admire several of his paintings: The Fall of the Rebel Angels (1562), the Winter Landscape with a Bird Trap and Skaters (1565), the Census at Bethlehem (1566) and the Adoration of the Kings. In addition, several copies by his sons and other (anonymous) followers allow you to further explore this brilliant artist's oeuvre.

Exhibition Dates: Ongoing throughout 2019

Exhibition Hours: Tuesday - Friday: 10:00 - 17:00 / Weekends: 11:00 - 18:00

Venue: Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Musee Old Masters Museum, Rue de la Regence / Regentschapsstraat 3, Brussels
