"as full of folk and bustle as a Breughel"

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525-1569) was the most famous of an illustrious family of painters.  Their family name can be spelt in a variety of ways, although Pieter was the only one to sign his work without an 'h'. 

Breughel lived mainly in Brussels and Holland during the Renaissance, and specialised in paintings of peasants in an unsentimental but vivid style. Other works, including religious and satiric paintings, are more peaceful and still, but his most famous pieces include all of the bustle and hurry of peasant life, whether at hunts, meals, festivals, dances or games.
