The World of Bruegel in Black and White

Description

Bruegel is not who you think he is…
Bruegel is a world-renowned painter, but in the 16th century it wasn’t his paintings he was known for – it was his graphic work which brought him widespread fame. This 2019 exhibition offers you the opportunity to get up close and personal with Bruegel’s famous prints.

As a pioneer in the rediscovery of Bruegel’s lesser-known masterpieces, KBR will exhibit its complete collection of prints during this special Bruegel year, at ‘The World of Bruegel in Black and White’.

Open daily from 11 AM – 7 PM

Around the middle of the 16th century Flanders emerged as the international center of the production of, and trade in, prints. Bruegel and his publisher, Hieronymus Cock, both played a key role during this time. The craftsmanship and enterprising skills of these two men are the focus of the exhibition.

Many of the works are held in various editions or ‘states’. However, before a first edition ever came on the market and could be distributed across the world, a print had already undergone a long process. Discover this journey, from drawing to print, in the exhibition ‘The World of Bruegel in Black and White’.

Admire some of his original preparatory drawings, Italian landscapes, the seven deadly sins, virtues and his other marvelous prints. Dive into Bruegel’s imaginary world and be surprised by the extraordinary figures and details.

This exhibition is set in the Palace of Charles of Lorraine, a unique 18th century hidden treasure in the heart of Brussels. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover what are perhaps the lesser-known works of this great Flemish master!
