Brueghel: A family affair

September 29th – November 19th 2021

Whether it is spelled Bruegel, Brueghel or Breughel, this name inevitably evokes the great Flemish painters of the 16th and 17th centuries. However, few of us know that the Brueghel dynasty extended far beyond those who bore this illustrious name. Through a selection of 12 paintings specially brought together for the occasion, De Jonckheere is pleased to present an original pictorial journey highlighting the artistic heritage as well as the various, sometimes poorly known, family ties that linked these famous figures of early Flemish painting.
