Money and Excrement. The Psychology of Capital and the Marketplace in Pieter Bruegel the Elder's ‘Dulle Griet'
(Louise S. Milne) The Low Countries - 1997, № 5, pp. 21-30
Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c.1525-1569) is beyond doubt the best-known Flemish painter of the sixteenth century. Little is known about his life, but from signatures and dates it is to some extent possible to survey his extensive oeuvre of paintings, drawings and engravings. This article investigates his most Bosch-like painting, the 'Dulle Griet'. This surreal masterpiece transforms images from city life and folklore to represent a contemporary psychological hell.
