Peasant Dance - Peter Brueghel the Elder. 114 x 164 cm

Brightly, colorful, dynamically depicted by the master brush Peter Bruegel the Elder painting "Peasant Dance". Her plot is a genre scene. The artist's work is a continuation of the plots of the series about peasants. He loved his people very much and dedicated his best brilliant creations to this topic.

The painting depicts a rustic street festival. Festivities "boiling" in all its might! In the center of the artistic composition, villagers walk and dance. The artist talentedly created an emphasis on this particular plot. A man plays the bagpipe. Next to him is a fellow villager, holding a jug of wine in his hands and listening to funny music. It pours beautifully and incendively, capturing people who came to the holiday. A man and a woman in a scarf are in a hurry to join this groovy walk. Peasants are sitting at the table. They lively talk, drink beer, argue, waving their hands. Behind them is a couple in love. Young people are busy on their own, do not notice anything around and kiss. Both children and adults have fun. They dance hand in hand. Everyone has a great mood! In a binge of fun at the door of the inn, the couple quarreled. The husband pulls his wife's hands out of him, probably he wants to take her home. Around the village street there are peasant huts, in the background of the picture in the distance a church is visible.

Peter Bruegel in his work of art in all its glory showed the Dutch people who know how to enjoy life! People are able to not only work, but also tastefully relax! The picture is filled with creative inspiration, bright colors of optimism and kind, cheerful energy. A firework of joy “splashes” with a fountain of happiness! The artist used color spots in his work, emphasizing the energetic and perky rhythm of the dancers. Everything whirls in a dynamic movement and carries you into the world of the holiday! One gets the impression that music, conversations, laughter of people transmitting a sense of delight are heard. With such wonderful pleasure, peasants relax at their leisure! It is as if the artist was observing a merry walk from the side, trying to capture every moment of his life.

The picture brings light, joy, charges with a favorable energy, instills confidence, heals from depression. Contemplating the reproduction, I want to be a party to the holiday, to plunge into the atmosphere of happy events. The artistic masterpiece will look great in the home interior of the living room and the nursery, giving bright, interesting, rainbow-colored impressions !!!
