in which museum is the seven deadly sins by breugel
Van Mander records that before he died he told his wife to burn some drawings, perhaps designs for prints, carrying inscriptions “which were too sharp or sarcastic. either out of remorse or for fear that she might come to harm or in some way be held responsible for them”, which has led to much speculation that they were politically or doctrinally provocative, in a climate of sharp tension in both these areas. 
Between 1545 and 1550 he was a pupil of Pieter Coecke, who died on 6 December 1550.  However, before this, Bruegel was already working in Mechelen, where he is documented between September 1550 and October 1551 assisting Peeter Baltens on an altarpiece (now lost), painting the wings in grisaille.  Bruegel possibly got this work via the connections of Mayken Verhulst, the wife of Pieter Coecke. Mayken’s father and eight siblings were all artists or married an artist, and lived in Mechelen. 
Antwerp’s KMSKA (Royal Museum of Fine Arts) might be closed for renovations until 2018, but lovers of Bruegel need not despair. Working in collaboration with the Municipal Museum in Lier, KMSKA’s curators have mounted an annual rotation of themed exhibitions entitled “Bruegel Land”, which presents the best of Bruegel in different settings. Voorland, curator of the 2014–2015 edition, “Hoge Horizon, 21st Century”, pit Bruegel the Elder against a host of contemporary artists and performers, exploring the painter’s enduring legacy and groundbreaking perspective. Until March 2015, visitors are treated to exhibitions, lectures, concerts, workshops and numerous tie-ins that canvass 50 classic paintings from the collection of KMSKA. A must for Bruegel buffs and anyone interested in pieces of art that have remained as fresh and spellbinding as the day they were painted, some 500 years ago.
With an oeuvre that has inspired everything from local beers and folk fests to internationally celebrated films and poetry (and even the Rolling Stones), Pieter Bruegel has long moved from our collective consciousness into the world heritage of art.

It is nearly impossible to go “beyond Bosch.” Master of the outlandish and premier portraitist of the hellish beyond, Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516) challenged imitators, yet imitators were legion, as the exhibition on display at the Harvard Art Museums shows. Joseph Leo Koerner, the Victor S. Thomas Professor of the History of Art and Architecture at Harvard, will introduce the art of this most.
The art of Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516) is characterized by fantastic creatures, fire-breathing monsters, and apocalyptic visions of Hell. Fascination with Bosch’s paintings ignited the imaginations of artists and viewers alike, giving rise to a distinct group of images inspired by this singular artist. This exhibition, organized by the Saint Louis Art Museum, explores the phenomenon of Bosch’s wide-reaching impact through the print medium from the 16th century to the present. The more than 30 prints on display, mostly from private collections, are joined by a selection from the Harvard Art Museums collections, presenting a unique opportunity to view these riveting works.
