Pieter Brueghel (the Elder)
The Museum of Fine Art in Vienna owns the world's biggest collection of paintings of Pieter Brueghel the Elder. A big part of them comes from the collection of Emperor Rudolf II. Brueghel is probably best known for his presentations of Flemish everyday life (Peasants' Marriage, Children's Games). But even his Cycle of the Seasons (Hunters in the Snow - winter, The Herd Returns - autum) and his religious paintings (Building the Babylonian Tower, Christ Carrying the Cross) shouldn't be forgotten.
