Storm at Sea - Pieter Bruegel the Elder - Framed Print - 12"H x 16"W

Pieter Bruegel (also Brueghel) the Elder was a Netherlandish Renaissance painter and printmaker, known for his landscapes and peasant scenes. He is sometimes referred to as the "Peasant Bruegel".

Bruegel entered the Antwerp painters' guild in 1551. His master, was the Antwerp painter Pieter Coecke van Aelst, whose daughter Maria Bruegel married. Also in 1551 Bruegel became a free master in the Guild of Saint Luke of Antwerp.

He received the nickname "Peasant Bruegel" or "Bruegel the Peasant" for his practice of dressing up like a peasant in order to socialize at weddings and other celebrations, thereby gaining inspiration and authentic details for his genre paintings.

The Orginal Storm at Sea is an oil-on-panel, painted in 1568. It is currently held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. It is an unfinished work, probably Bruegel's last painting.
