Jan Brueghel the Elder (Brussels, 1568 - Antwerp, 1625) was a Flemish painter. Son of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and father of Jan Brueghel the Younger. His father Pieter, from 1559, dropped the "h" from his name and started signing his paintings as Bruegel.

A flower painter and landscape artist, Jan Brueghel the Elder worked from nature... His best-known collaborator was his friend Peter Paul Rubens. Brueghel's sons, including Jan Brueghel the Younger, and later artists carried on his style well into the 1700s. [1]
