Description
An ebullient jigsaw puzzle, full of intricate detail, merriment and mischief: reproducing Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s (c.1525-69) painting, ‘The Wedding Dance’, c.1566. The artist was a pioneer of painting the life of real people, and revels in the joyful abandon of 125 wedding guests in this lusty scene. Spot the bride, wearing a (then-traditional) black dress; the cod-pieces of formal attire for men; the ‘pijpzah’ (bagpipes) of the musician; the Bride’s Table; and several canoodling couples aide from the melee of the dance. Once thought to be lost, the painting was rediscovered by the Director of the Detroit Institute of Arts on a visit to England in 1930. This version of the image reflects a 1942 restoration which removed over-painting to hide some of the more suggestive details.
