The Sense of Hearing
Oil on panel. 1617 - 1618
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This set of paintings on the five senses (Sight, Hearing, Smell, Taste, Touch) was one of the most successful collaborations of Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Brueghel “the elder.” Rubens placed his figures in the magnificent courtly scenes created by Brueghel as settings for these allegories of the senses, resulting in a series of enormous quality and esthetic appeal. The subject was widely employed i

Abundance, personified by Ceres, goddess of fertility and agriculture, sits in front of a thicket of reeds at the edge of a forest. She has adorned her hair with wheat spikes -her attribute- and bears the horn of plenty under her left arm. Earth sits at her feet, offering her one of her fruits, she is personified by Flora, goddess of the earth and also of spring, which explains the flowers in her

Archduke Alberto de Austria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1615
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Alberto de Austria, the sovereign prince of the Low Countries, is dressed in black and sits under a canopy indicating that this is a court portrait. Unlike the customary indoor portraits, this one is set on a balcony open to a landscape that includes Tervuren Palace, near Brussels. This portrait, and that of his wife, Isabel Clara (P01684), seeks not only to bring out the figure of the Archduke, b

Mule Train and Gypsies in a Forest
Oil on copperplate. 1612
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

A group of travelers stop to rest, sitting together in the road. One of them speaks to a muleskinner, who leads a caravan of loaded mules. A very broad landscape unfolds on the left. In this painting, Brueghel offers one of his views with figures, but without any defined plot. He reveals his debt to the landscape ideas of Joost de Romper (1568-1625) by placing the figures at a bend in the road and

Wedding Banquet
Oil on canvas. 1623
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The artist chose the end of a wedding banquet in the country to offer a depiction of rural life during one its most collective moments. Some figures are shown inebriated, others are dancing, kissing and embracing or bringing gifts to the married couple located in the background before a red hanging.

In this painting, Ceres, goddess of agriculture and fertility, is surrounded by fruits and flowers, pictured as the personification of Abundance holding the horn of plenty in her hands. The history of the horn of plenty is taken from two texts by the Roman poet Ovid (43 BCE-CE 17/18), Metamorphoses (IX, 80-100) and Book of Days (V, 121-24). The idea of prosperity is completed by the personificatio

The Vision of Saint Hubert
Oil on panel. 1617 - 1620
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Legend has it that Saint Hubert encountered a magnificent buck while hunting. When he tried to kill the animal, he saw a cross appear between the animal´s antlers. That is when he took the Christian faith. This story is identical to that of the conversion of Saint Eustace, with whom this painting has been related at times. Saint Hubert lived in Liege, in the Low Countries, and his conversion was m

Francken II, Frans; Balen, Hendrick Van; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This canvas and its companion, Taste, Hearing and Touch (P1404), represent the five senses embodied by female figures in palatial interiors. The sense of smell is conveyed by a woman holding flowers, while Sight contemplates herself in a mirror held by a cherub. They are located in a hall filled with paintings and sculptures, a sort of cabinet of paintings that could reflect an idealized represent

Taste, Hearing and Touch
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1620
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The dinner guests occupying the center of the composition symbolize the senses. Music and the singing children are hearing, and the young woman petting a mink is touch. The young woman preparing to eat some oysters symbolizes taste, while the monkey pulling on a cupid´s hair also symbolizes touch. Of equal significance are the animals and paintings in the room. The Annunciation on the top of the c

This excellent example of the collaboration between Brueghel and Momper depicts simple rural life in Flanders, joining the genre of landscape painting with that of everyday life. The groups of figures were made by Brueghel, while Momper painted the landscape, with his characteric violet tonalities in the background. Here, Momper abandons his broad panoramas in favor of a more realistic perspective

Like the portrait of her husband (P01683), Isabel Clara Eugenia, ruler of the Low Countries, is depicted sitting under a red canopy on a balcony open to landscape. In this case, the palace visible in the distance is Mariemont, one of the Infanta´s favorites, which she had remodeled. The style of her clothing, especially the collar, date this work from the beginning of the second decade of the seve
