The great European artist of the Northern Renaissance, Peter Bruegel worked in France, Brussels and Antwerp. All the plots of his paintings did not fundamentally fit into classical iconography. Rather, they can be attributed to the satirical-allegorical type of art.

The original painting "Peasant Wedding" is painted in oil on an oak board. Like the bulk of his work, the canvas was transferred to the Museum of Historical Arts in Vienna.

He always perceived life and processes as something strange and bizarre, perceived in his own vision and specific understanding of the world. This was manifested not only to personal existence, but to all people in general, whom he had a habit of observing. Having a great sense of humor, he sang in his works and, one might say, ridiculed the situation with all its natural spontaneity.

This was reflected in the presented image, where a seemingly joyful event takes place. However, all the gathered people have absolute indifference in their eyes, and none of them are smiling.

A young bride, all alone sits sad and motionless. Some people go everywhere, invitees sit, drink and eat, not paying attention to anyone. On the left, a man fills a jug with wine, on the other hand, they carry cakes on a door removed from the hinges, using instead of a tray.

All around eagerly fix their views on food.

Nearby, on the left, the child sits on the floor already with a cake in his hands and eats it. He is wearing a funny hat with brim that partially covers his face and eyes.

Bruegel in everything had the ability to emphasize the roughness and earthliness of the peasants. Drunk and clumsy characters of the picture, completely filled the live scenes on his canvases, which is the exact opposite of the Italian canon of the refined style of depicting people.
