Later paintings with large figures (1568)
by Pieter BRUEGEL the Elder

The simplification of form attracted Bruegel to the works of Italian art that he saw and studied during his journey abroad, and by which he was influenced after his move to Brussels in 1563. In many of his later paintings the figures are large, they quite dominate the scene, but their only real connection with the Italian Renaissance lies in their massive simplicity.
