Landscape with Shepherds

Ca. 1560. Oil on panel.
Room 055A

This view reflects the new approach to mountain landscapes introduced by Pieter Bruegel the Elder in the 1550s. In comparison to Patinir’s fragmented vision, it presents the landscape as a completed whole. The mountains are the real subject of the work, with the figures merely pretexts for depicting them.
