A Country Wedding by Pieter Bruegel

Cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince Dutch Masters Fine Art Collection.

Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525 – 9 September 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.

The Peasant Wedding is a 1567 or 1568 painting by the Flemish Renaissance painter and printmaker Pieter Brueghel the Elder, one of his many depicting peasant life. It is currently housed in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

The bride is under the canopy, and the groom is uncertain, but may be the man in black, to the left of the largest figure, leaning back, with a mug in hand. Musicians play, and an unbreeched boy in the foreground licks a plate.

The feast is in a barn; two ears of corn with a rake reminding us of the work that harvesting involves, and the hard lot peasants have. The plates are carried on a door off its hinges. The main food was bread, porridge and soup.

Approx: 30" x 21" or 76 x 53cm - when worked on 18ct.
