The Brueghel Dynasty: Jan Brueghel the Younger

The Brueghel Dynasty: Jan Brueghel the Younger

We dedicated this week series to the Brueghel dynasty. A name of a family that became a mark of excellence in the arts and the most important group of Flemish artists working between the 16th and 17th centuries.

The family includes Pieter Brueghel the ElderPieter Brueghel the Younger, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Jan Brueghel the Younger, Ambrosius Brueghel, Abraham Brueghel, Jan Peter Brueghel and Jan Van Kessel.

We close the cycle with Jan Brueghel the Younger (1601 – 1678), son Jan Brueghel the Elder, who spent his career producing works in a similar style; along with his brother Ambrosius produced landscapes and  allegorical scenes. Interesting to know that he and also copied works by his father and sold them with his father’s signature.
