Pieter Brueghel is well known as one of the greatest Netherlandish painters of the Sixteenth Century. Best known for his wonderful witty paintings of people in landscapes, he was also an accomplished creator of images to be issued as engravings. His series on the Seven Deadly Sins of 1556-7 deserves to be better known. In this he looked back to Hieronymus Bosch as inspiration for his visual language.
