The Bosch and Bruegel Society was founded on deep appreciation for the work of the painters Hieronymus Bosch (c.1450 -1516) and Pieter Bruegel I (c.1525 -1569). We are dedicated to focused exploration of the worlds bequeathed to us in their paintings.
Examples of our inquiries include "The Problem of the Dog-Legged Gate" and the reproduction of The Lapis Documents, undocumented pages from the personal journal of an artist working in the Low Countries. The Bosch and Bruegel Society topic list is as varied as the works of the artists themselves and we hope that it leads to a fuller appreciation of their extraordinary art.
Bosch and Bruegel Tour
Bruges at Dawn
On April 21, 2010, four members of the Bosch and Bruegel Society flew to Amsterdam for a splendid ten day tour of paintings and historic sites in Belgium and Holland. It included three days in Bruges, two days in Gent, with a day trip to Brussels, half a day in Antwerp, two days in s'Hertogenbosch, half a day in Rotterdam and a final day in Amsterdam. See the President's Diary to plan your own B+B tour. We highly recommend it! The museums are gorgeous, the people are very friendly, the food is delicious, the lodgings are comfortable and the scenery is incredible.
