Five hundred years ago, there were a number of artists in The Netherlands who saw the beauty in daily life. And more than that: these artists were so talented that their depictions of the commonplace succeeded in making others receptive to it. There and then, in the 53 years between the death of Hieronymus Bosch (1516) and that of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1569) lies the origins of our unquenchable interest for ourselves, the devious and the other. This animation film, made with images of art works, many of which are on show in the exhibition, gives a special introduction to ‘The discovery of daily life – From Bosch to Bruegel’. In Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen until 17 January 2016.
