Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Pieter Brueghel the Younger was the elder of two sons of Pieter Brueghel the Elder, and was born in 1564, just a few years before their father's death.  Pieter the Younger was known as "Hell Brueghel" because of his fascination with hobgoblins, fires and grotesque figures.  He made his career in Antwerp where he became a master in the guild in 1585.  He is best known as a copyist of his father's paintings, as they were both popular and scarce.  In his own canvases he showed a firm grasp of space and movement.  He died in 1638.   

Written and compiled by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California.
