Pieter Brueghel the Younger Biography

Pieter Brueghel the Younger, the elder of two sons of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, was only five when his father died. He was trained by the landscape Flemish painter Gillis van Coninxloo (1544-1607) and made his career in Antwerp, where he became a master in the Lucas Guild in 1585. The younger Pieter painted religious subjects, fantastic compositions and landscapes. For his fascination with hobgoblins, fires, and grotesque figures he was nicknamed "Hell Brueghel".
