Description

Pieter Brueghel the elder is an incredibly versatile and complex historical figure – having a tremendous influence on art, culture, and the way we perceive the 16th century in hindsight. He was really a Renaissance man, having worked as a Painter, Printmaker, Draughtsman, and Humanist in turn.

By focusing primarily on his paintings, Sabry Amroussi will be lifting the veil on this mysterious character, taking us through the paintings he considers essential to get a deeper understanding of this master of storytelling. From farmers to fallen angels, participants should expect to be immersed in the rich artistic language of the enigmatic Pieter Brueghel the Elder and understand its brilliant subtleties and hidden meanings.

Brilliant Brueghel

Who knew that Icarus had such an ignominious fall into the drink? That the Matterhorn migrated to the Netherlands? Don't miss this scintillating class with Sabry if you have time to spend with Pieter the Elder, the Brueghel without the 'H'.

Wonderful courses.

Sabry Amroussi does an extraordinary job of providing insights into an artist's life, or the political and social setting in which the artist worked. I love taking his seminars. I wish that I could enroll in additional courses--but, my work-life gets in the way!!
