In order to distinguish between them, different families of Bruegel were given nicknames that characterized their work. So Jan Brueghel the Elder was called the Velvet - or Flower Brueghel. Indeed, his flower bouquets belonged to the most beautiful pieces of the Dutch painting. He composed an illusionistic flower paradise with his masterful, accurate rendition of flower shapes and colors of all seasons. Thanks to his education in miniature painting, he managed to represent the beauty of the flowers in great detail.

Jan Brueghel was the second son of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Born in 1568 in Brussels. After his apprenticeship with Coninxloo he went to Italy and was admitted to the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke in 1597. Here thanks to his work he made friends with Peter Paul Rubens. The highest point of his career was a position of the court painter However, the highlight of his career was the position of a painter at the court of Albrecht, the Archduke of Austria.

Although Jan Brueghel took up the themes of his father’s works, for example the landscapes or peasant scenes, however, he never achieved their moralizing effect. He was especially skillful in the use of color: the velvet light effects of a unique color palette were achieved thanks to the light and dark contrasts, while the magnificent flower still lives infatuated by their clear composition and color.

On January 12, 1625 Jan Brueghel the Elder, a highly respected painter in Antwerp, died of cholera.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

Epochal term for the art of the 17th century. Baroque art style that emanated from Rome in 1600 permeated fine arts, literature and music practically all over Europe within a very short time and lasted until 1770 in the fine arts. The last phase is generally characterized by the rococo.

Characteristic features include: the pulsating movement of all forms, the abolition of boundaries between architecture, painting and sculpture, that resulted in typical for the era synthesis of the arts, and especially in specific handling of light, which became an important artistic component. The subordination of the part to the whole led to the emergence of a single and, at the same time, dynamic space, which comes into full effect in the magnificent buildings of its time.

The Baroque art, with its tendency towards greatness, magnificence and rushing abundance clearly reflects the desire for representation, which was a concern of secular and ecclesiastical, especially Catholic customers strengthened through Counter-Reformation of that time. In painting, characteristic features of the Baroque, are manifested in the altar and ceiling painting, history and portrait.

The area of the sculpture is typically represented by such artists as Anthony van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and others.
