BRUEGEL, Pieter the Elder
(b. ca. 1525, Brogel, d. 1569, Brussel)

Twelve Proverbs

Oak panels, 75 x 98 cm
Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Antwerp

These panels, joined together to create one picture, perhaps served originally as a kind of plate. The majority of the proverbs may also be found in Bruegel's painting from 1559.
