The Ass in the School

Antwerp, 1556


The population of the Netherlands provinces had a high level of education - indeed, an Italian traveler even ventured the opinion that everyone could read and write. Bruegel is laughing at his countrymen's eagerness to learn: the caption comments that "An ass will never become a horse, even if he goes to school."
