Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Peasant Wedding, 1568-69, ©: KHM-Museumsverband
This picture was created around 1568 by the Dutch artist Pieter Bruegel the Elder. One sees a realistic representation of a rural wedding party. At first it is not clear where the bride and groom are actually sitting. The viewer's gaze is slowed down by two people in the foreground who are holding flat broad plates.
