  • Hit! Pieter Bruegel de Oude on the last day at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. 
Bruegel's art is simply more human and generous than most painters. No big ego, not so self-obsessed. Bruegel paints you and me and everyone.

Here • The Beggars • from 1568. 
One of his last paintings shows a pitiless depiction of human degradation, where malformed bodies twisting into a bizarre, limping round dance. Many hypotheses have been put forward to interpret this painting, particularly addressing the question of what the foxtails, hanging from the garments worn by the beggars, are meant to symbolize. The scene may be an allusion to Koppermaandag, the beggars' feast day held annually on the Monday after Epiphany, when the beggars would sing as they begged for alms in the streets. The composition could also be an example of the carnivalesque tradition of the world upside-down. In this case, the work would be a satirical parody, with the beggars representing the different classes of a society on the road to ruin. The classes are indicated by their headgear: a cardboard crown for the king, a paper coiffe for the army, a beret for the bourgeoisie, a cap for the peasantry, and a bishop's mitre for the church. The painting is also thought to contain an allusion to the political situation of the day and the Beggars' Revolt against the Spanish occupation. In 1566 Calvinist lords tried to rally the minor nobility and the upper ranks of the bourgeoisie to form a sort of national unity, united by the cry "Vive le gueux" (long live the beggar!). It is thought that the foxtail was the symbol they used to show they belonged to the movement.
