This chapter discusses the rise of a painting in everyday life in Northern Europe. It focuses on the representations of ‘everyman’ in the art of the early pioneers of genre painting: Pieter Bruegel the Elder and Hieronymus Bosch. It considers the figure of ‘trapping’ in these artists, as a model both of everyman's relation to the world and of the picture's relation to the viewer.

Keywords:   everyday life, painting, Northern Europe, everyman, genre painting, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Hieronymus Bosch, figure of trapping
