Jan Brueghel the Elder was the son of Pieter Brueghel the Elder, the head of the Brueghel family of great Flemish painters
in the sixteen - seventeenth centuries, and a great artist himself, who, like his greatly endowed son featured in this thread, was the creator of magnificent and colorful landscape paintings too - in fact, I hope to feature him and his works soon in this very same forum as well. Let me please show here and now my three best favorites among these.


Pieter Brueghel the Elder - Landscape with the Fall of Icarus
(oil on canvas mounted on wood, c. 1558)

Pieter Brueghel the Elder - The Tower of Babel (oil on oak panel, 1563)

Pieter Brueghel the Elder - Hunters in the Snow (Winter)
(oil on panel, 1565)

Back to Jan Brueghel the Elder, here is one of his most charming paintings, (The Earthly) Paradise (also called 'Paradise with Animals') of 1620.

I have not been able to unveil the date of this awesome master work by Jan Brueghel the Elder, but there is at least certainty as to its title: Coastal Landscape with the Tomb of Scipion.

Dear friends, this is my second-best favorite masterpiece by Jan Brueghel the Elder (my best favorite of course is his Christ Preaching at the Seaport adorning the first page of this thread here).

Jan Brueghel the Elder - River Landscape with Resting Travellers
(no further details available)


Miguel,

I must admit how this is my favorite Jan Brueghel the Elder painting.
It is a great idea to make one separate thread dedicated to his works.
Can't wait to see it.

Thank you Miguel.
