Pieter Bruegel and the First Modern Landscape (1565)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art calls this painting a “watershed in the history of Western art” and the “first modern landscape”.. Because of the new humanist lens through which Pieter Bruegel the Elder viewed his world, landscape painting was no longer limited to backgrounds for mythological or religious illustrations.
