Pieter Bruegel was born in Belgium. (Sometimes his name is spelled Brueghel .)
In 1551 he became an apprentice of an artist, Aelst. He traveled to Italy
about that time and painted many pictures, mostly landscapes. He was about 26
years old at the time. He married the daughter of his master. His paintings
were very popular in his time, and are still popular today, over 400 years
later. In the painting "Children's Games", he shows children playing all sorts
of games. Children today still play versions of some of the games shown. He
liked to paint a lot of small figures in a large space. He was called Pieter
the Elder. He had two sons who became famous painters. One of them was named
Pieter, and he was called Pieter the Younger. His grandsons also became
artists. This was quite an artistic family.
