The Return of the Hunters

1568

Bruegel's subtly political paintings deal in subject matter uncommon in the paintings that came before his: rustic country scenes, farmers, and peasant life. Ironically his works were popular among the elites of his time, who appreciated the simpler life they perceived the paintings conveyed.
