Started work with copy works of the father, but later he developed his own style of writing. When my father died younger Peter was only 4 years. After the boy grew older, he began to work independently with the sketches of the father. First was copying his paintings, then began to create their works, and over time he developed his own style, his colors were brighter, sharper image. At the beginning of his artistic career, Pieter Brueghel the younger, was fascinated by the stories of the last judgment and the picture of the horrors of hell, demons and witches. For their work was nicknamed Hell. Then he slightly softened his style, refusing motifs in the spirit of Bosch (despite the fact that the Spanish king Philip II and hung the picture of Bosch in the bedroom). Pieter Brueghel the Younger began to create paintings, almost copies of the works of the father. That has not prevented him to acquire no less popular. And his attention to detail and interest to the most common manifestations of human life became a model. His work has become a real encyclopedia of life.
