Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Fall of the Rebel Angels, 1562, Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Brussels

In depicting this scene from the book of Revelation, Bruegel works very much in the tradition of Hieronymus Bosch. While this fantastical scene full of grotesque monsters does not appear to have much in common with genre paintings he is known for, it is easy to see the same commitment to intricate detail shown here in his paintings of daily peasant life.
