Bruegel’s Netherlandish Proverbs explained in detail by Artful Videos

Today “The die is cast”, I decided “To fry the herring for the roe” and publish a post on Bruegel’s Netherlandish Proverbs. I will not “Put my armor on” if you don’t like it, but I don’t want “To shave the fool without lather” or “To gaze at the stork”. But “The journey is not over if you can see the church and steeple” so let me ask you: “Who knows why geese go barefoot?”.

I feel like gazing a bit at the stork today.

Peter Bruegel’s painting is 450 years old and still contains around 100 proverbs we still use today. At this link you can see the whole painting in detail, thanks to Google Arts and Culture.
