About

Peasant Bruegel’ - highbrow humanist, painter of nature or practical joker? In this lecture Amy Orrock will explore the many identities of the elusive father of the Bruegel dynasty, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, through the legacy of his sons and followers. Focusing on key paintings from the exhibition Bruegel: Defining a Dynasty, the lecture will consider what the works reveal about Bruegel and his admirers throughout the ages.

Dr Amy Orrock is an art historian, co-curator of the exhibition and author of the book Bruegel: Defining a Dynasty. She received her PhD from the University of Edinburgh with a dissertation on Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Children’s Games, and has published and lectured widely on Flemish art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
