Bruegel. Drawing The World

Pieter Bruegel the Elder was one of the 16th century’s most important draughtsmen. Done on the eve of the Dutch Revolt against Spanish rule, amidst an era of political, social, and religious transformation, Bruegel’s drawings conjure up a pictorial world that is every bit as complex as his times. These images reflect upon social conditions in a way that is humorous, down-to-earth, perceptive, and unprejudiced. As a moralist, Bruegel makes a theme of human beings’ tragedy and greatness, ridiculousness and weakness on both the historical and the personal level.

With its approximately 100 works, this exhibition by the Albertina presents the entire spectrum of Bruegel’s drawn and printed oeuvre and seeks to shed light on his artistic origins by juxtaposing his output with high-quality works by important predecessors such as Bosch and Dürer. Included are around 20 of the Dutch artist’s most beautiful drawings from the museum’s own extensive holdings as well as from international collections, a selection that also brings together two of his final drawings—Spring and Summer—for the first time in many years. Furthermore, numerous printed treasures—discovered and painstakingly restored at the Albertina over the course of long-running research projects—will be shown for the first time.
