Proverbs
Proverbs Proverbs

By Pieter Brueghel The Younger II

Proverbs
Proverbs Proverbs

This is an imaginary village teeming with people and animals. Each scene represents an old Dutch proverb. There are more than 70 proverbs in the painting. Brueghel’s purpose is to show his viewers what they shouldn’t do. He turns the world upside down. This picture is a copy of one painted by his father, Pieter Brueghel the Elder (ca. 1525/30-1569). The Brueghel family painted a number of versions of this theme. They were apparently in big demand.
