This painting is consistent with the common themes in Bruegel’s paintings on the absurdity, wickedness, and foolishness of humans. In 1558—a year before Netherlandish Proverbs was made— Bruegel had completed a series of Twelve Proverbs on individual panels, as well as Big Fish Eat Little Fish in 1556, but Netherlandish Proverbs is thought to be the first large scale representation of the genre. At first glance it looks like a crowded everyday genre scene (a genre scene is a depiction of everyday life).
