16 January – 17 April
The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery, Courtauld Gallery, London
The Netherlandish artist Pieter Bruegel the Elder (around 1525–1569) achieved widespread fame for his innovative graphic works. Bruegel’s close observation and exceptional skills as a draughtsman result in a palpable vision of the natural world in his landscapes, whilst his figural compositions burst with rich and keenly observed detail.
This display brings together works by Bruegel and works formerly attributed to him within the Courtauld Gallery’s collection to examine this legacy.
