      How did Caligula, Nero, and Commodus become the poster boys for megalomania, for instance? Around ninety works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder are to go on show for the first time as part of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.

These look forward to the strange late paintings The Misanthrope and The Blind Leading the Blind both : dispatches from a world where people are incapable of seeing the traps and dangers that lie all around them. Bruegel may have felt safer with a secular commission so as to not offend Calvinist or Catholic. Many of these works are so sensitive they have never been loaned before.
