The Peasant Dance

  Buy now from barewalls.com1568: Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

Thought to be the companion piece to Bruegel's Peasant Wedding, the joviality of this picture is infectious. Bruegel's eye objectively captures many scenes: cantankerous drunkards; a couple kissing; a feisty older man pulling a young peasant woman to join him in a dance; and children imitating their dancing elders.
