Details: This poster is of The Parable of the Blind, also known as The Blind Leading the Blind, by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. It shows six blind men going forward one after the other. A blind guide goes first and falls in a hole with his staff. The next blind trips over the first one. The third connected with the second with a staff follow his predecessors. The fifth and the sixth don't yet know what is happening but will fall into the hole at the end. The painting is likely based on Luke 6:39 from the Bible: Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?
Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525 - September 9, 1569) was a Netherlandish Renaissance painter and printmaker known for his landscapes and peasant scenes (Genre Painting). He is nicknamed Peasant Bruegel to distinguish him from other members of the Brueghel dynasty, but is also the one generally meant when the context does not make clear which Bruegel is being referred to. From 1559 he dropped the 'h' from his name and started signing his paintings as Bruegel. In Bruegel's later years he painted in a simpler style than the Italianate art that prevailed in his time. The most obvious influence on his art is the older Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch.
