• The role of patrons, collecting and the art market in relation to the Bruegel dynasty.
• Research on new biographical data, especially on lesser-known members of the Bruegel family.
• Research on the interpretation and reception of works by members of the Bruegel dynasty or sixteenth and seventeenth-century artists influenced by the Bruegel tradition.
This 2018 colloquium is the XXI Symposium for the Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting.
